TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- It is National Adoption Month, so for many children this could be a way to finally find a home. More than 900 children in Kansas have that wish, looking for their hero.

To commend families who have welcomed children into their homes, and fine homes for other kids waiting in line, Adopt Kansas Kids along with Project Belong hosted a celebration today.

Adoptive families and all who wished to celebrate them were welcome.

Kids and families had a blast with activities, games, a photo booth, pizza and a short program.

All the kiddos dressed up in their favorite super hero costume, fitting the theme that adopting deserving kids is a heroic thing.

Project Coordinator of Adopt Kansas Kids Corey Lada said that today was to show people what adoption is really all about.

"It's really something special, something to be very proud of," he said. "We're here to tell people these kids are just like every other kid. They just deserve what a lot of us take for granted, and that's a home."

Adopt Kansas Kids brings WIBW-TV its Wednesday Child every week, profiling one kid searching for a home.
