Adoption Day in the San Luis Valley

July 31, 2019

In May 2018, Colorado Department of Human Services recognized BJ and Sol Baumgardner during our annual celebration of National Foster Care Month.

Fast forward to spring 2019, BJ and Sol welcomed us back into their home to document the day they finalized the adoption of Deon and Shaina. BJ and Sol have been foster parents in the San Luis Valley for 15 years. They have fostered countless kids and adopted three prior to Deon and Shaina officially being adopted.

On this special day, family, friends, bosses and young people in foster care who are now adults gathered to celebration adoption and family.
