Dakota and Julia celebrated the adoption of their three little boys today!
The family sported matching shirts claiming April 17th to be Geiman Adoption Day. The three brothers were smiling and hugging all relatives and friends who came to celebrate with them. The extra special piece about this story is that during their fostering journey, Julia and Dakota were blessed with baby Nora. She now has three big brothers to look out for her!
Congratulations, Geiman family!
DCCH is proud to announce another adoption finalization. Bradley Allen joined the Duncan family with a big grin and joyous anticipation at the Kenton County Family Court Room. Ever since being placed in their foster home in August 2021, he has been awaiting this day.
Joe and Jess Kues celebrated an adoption finalization. Even before being sworn in for testimony, thirteen-year-old Steven interrupted Family Court Judge Abigail Voelker to announce he wished to become a Kues. He hammered the gavel down, leaving no doubt of his new official status. Just short of two years he has been living with the Kues family when joining their lives through foster care. Steven was welcomed by brothers Kian and Donavan, and big sister Alannah. A court room full of people with many relatives and friends came to mark the special milestone in his life. Congratulations Steven and the Kues family!

Ten-year-old Taylin celebrated in style today for her adoption finalization hearing in Boone County Family Court.
She wore an elegant white dress and arrived in a purple stretch limousine with her parents, Jimmy and Lauren, two baby siblings, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. DCCH case managers, both current and past, Brittany Powell, Sarah McAdams, Danielle Thamm, and TFC Director Ron Bertsch, were all on hand to witness the big occasion.
