Families celebrate special day in Trumbull County

National adoption day

WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A handful of parents welcomed new additions to their families at the Trumbull County Courthouse in Warren.

In recognition of National Adoption Month, Probate Judge Thomas Swift opened his courtroom Monday to the public for three separate adoption hearings.

This year’s theme is “There’s No Place Like Home.”

It’s an important day for these families but it is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the thousands of kids who still need loving homes.

“It is a celebration of adoption, and it is a celebration of families, in some cases, new families,” said Judge Swift.

Trumbull County Commissioners read a proclamation declaring November 10 National Adoption Day in Trumbull County.

Judge Swift estimates he has conducted about 5,000 adoptions in his 35 years on the bench as Trumbull County Probate Court Judge.

After the hearings, there was a brunch and balloon launch for families.
