Lori Cope, the director of the Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Hunt County, says 19 children were adopted at the Hunt County Courthouse on November 17 as part of National Adoption Day (and Month).  Most of them were adopted by their foster parents.  Lori says recently a 17-year-old was adopted by a Hunt County couple one day before he became an adult at 18.  Several Christmas-oriented events are benefiting CASA: The Festival of Trees at Greenville Floral on Lee Street in downtown Greenville; the Altrusa Christmas Tour of Homes on Sunday, December 3rd; and a toy drive at Landon's Winery, Thursday night, December 7.
