First Lady of Colorado Robin Hickenlooper and Reggie Bicha, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), on Saturday recognized five families as part of National Adoption Month. Nearly 100 people attended the luncheon celebration at the Governor’s Mansion. Families from several Colorado counties were honored for their dedication to Colorado’s kids. The families are featured in a series of videos unveiled at the event created to inspire Coloradans to consider fostering and adopting in Colorado.
