A steady stream of families with 21 kids had their forever family dream come true by Judge Cynthia Giuliani dressed as a fairy godmother on Halloween.

Courts can be a scary place for young kids. Adoptions performed by a fairy godmother judge make it fun and not so scary for the children. They along with their families also get to dress up for the momentous occasion to create a fond memory that families will cherish.

Every child deserves a stable, loving family and for many children adoption is their dream. This is the sixth year Judge Giuliani created the special adoptions experience around Halloween. “There are so many children in our community who need stable, loving homes,” said Judge Giuliani. “These adoptions are a joyous occasion and a bright spot. By celebrating these adoptions in this special way we hope to touch the hearts of those who may be interested in adoption and motivate them to welcome a child into their life.”

The District Court Family Division is involved in other special adoption events, including an annual adoption day marathon which is scheduled this year for Nov.15 and will include seven Family Court judges. “Judge Giuliani is using a creative approach to spotlight a big need in our community for adoptive families,” said Family Division Presiding Judge Bryce Duckworth. “We see far too many children in our community who have endured abuse and neglect. They long for a loving and stable home in which to thrive. Our challenge is to make all their wishes come true.”

The newly minted mom and dad gushed as reality sunk in on their hectic new life of love and raising three kids.
