Albany--More than 260 children in Georgia are waiting to be adopted. Thursday night parents of adopted children and those who support them gathered for a candlelight vigil.

The department of Human Resources sponsored the event and hopes to recruit more foster and adoptive parents. Parents at tonight's vigil say giving a needy child a home changes your life forever.  "It's never a dull moment", says Venitra Crenshaw who has three adopted children. "There is the piter pater of little feet. There is always lots of home work. Its has in enriched our live being able to have a full family." 

D-H-R placed more than a thousand Georgia children in adoptive homes last year including 28 in Dougherty County. This is national adoption month.
