CDHS Honors Five Colorado Adoptive Families

Adoption Celebration

On Saturday, the Colorado Department of Human Services honored five adoptive families from across the state who provide loving and permanent homes for kids.

Nearly 100 people attended the recognition luncheon at the Governor’s Mansion, part of the Department's celebration of National Adoption Month.

The families honored were:

  • The Kniss Family from Thornton
  • The Sims-Herrick Family from Denver
  • The Hubbard Family from Greeley
  • The Straw Family from Rifle
  • The Kealy Family from Colorado Springs

In 2014, 476 children and youth were adopted from the foster care system in Colorado. CDHS expects that number to increase after National Adoption Day on November 22, with another 110 adoptions taking place during eight adoption day celebrations around the state.
