Youngster Protective Services credits new device for uptick in adoptions

In the latest decades, about five kids on a yearly basis have been adopted through Crawford County Kid Protecting Services.

So much this calendar year, 20 have been adopted — and the company is aiming for 21 in ’21, said Cassandra Holtzmann, director of its mother or father business, Crawford County Task and Spouse and children Solutions.

Adoption No. 20 was 1-calendar year-previous Jaclyn, who was adopted a handful of months ago by Kelsey and Zach Stuckey of Bucyrus.

“We have usually wanted a large spouse and children, and so we felt like we had been named to get into foster treatment,” Zach mentioned. “So we bought accredited in January of this 12 months, and instantly soon after getting licensed, we had been positioned with Jaclyn.”

Jaclyn joins the Stuckeys’ two organic daughters — Waylynn, 4 and Ruby, 2. They are also fostering an toddler boy.
