There was no shortage of smiles in an Ingham County courtroom Wednesday.
Judge George Economy presided over several Christmas day adoptions in the morning. It's a tradition he's been part of for over 25 years, making new families official.
One new mother we spoke with says she's ready to give her newly-adopted son a stable home life.
"I think we are very excited, but nervous. We know Lamar is having a hard time. He's been through a lot of different families,"said Julie Parks, a foster mother who adopted her son Wednesday.
There are nearly 3,000 foster kids in Michigan waiting to be adopted.
