Adoption Day 2013
For the sixth year in a row, Baylor Law School hosted
Adoption Day in McLennan County. On Nov. 22, judges, attorneys, community organizations, professional organizations, county employees, businesses and CASA volunteers gathered at Baylor Law to finalize adoptions and create forever homes for children in foster care. Baylor Law students, faculty, alumni, and staff, led by Professor Bridget Fuselier and members of the Baylor Public Interest Society, transformed Baylor Law School into the Emerald City as 26 children and 16 families found that "there's no place like home." Catch highlights
of the event and see a family
