Happiness filled the courtroom last week as 197th District Court Judge Migdalia Lopez finalized the adoption of three children into Cameron County families.
With the arrival of National Adoption Awareness Month, Lydia and Jorge Abundiz adopted Jodee Lydia Abundiz, 1, who they have had in their care since the child was four days old. The family felt great to finally have Jodee officially part of the family.
“She has always felt like our family,” Lydia Abundiz said.
Rolando and Cristina Garzoria adopted Trey Austin Garzoria, 8, who have been in the child’s life as foster parents for four years.
