Every adoption is like a snowflake-- one of a kind.

Several "snowflakes" fell in Lincoln Saturday morning, as a part of National Adoption Day.

"It's a long process," said Becky Tegeler, who adopted her daughter on Saturday. "She was twenty months old yesterday. She came in when she was three days old, so it's been a long process, but she's worth the wait."

But now, everything is official. And it's time for their family to start their lives.

Tegeler also has an adopted son, Greyson, who was excited to be a part of the event.

"I love her too much," he said about his sister.

"We are just going to start living now," said Tegeler. "I'm done fostering, and now I have my hands full. We're excited to start a family today and see where life takes us."

Her daughter, Stella, was one of more than 60 others took part in Lincoln's Adoption day.

The day was a time for the kids to realize just how special they are.

"I think it makes it more of a family experience," said one juvenile judge, "and that's what today is about family, and these children having that forever family."

An estimated 4,500 children were adopted on National Adoption Day, which was actually November 17th.

More than 114,000 are still available for adoption.
