The chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court is joining other judges in approving adoptions as part the state's annual adoption day.

Thirty-three counties have scheduled adoption day events, many of them on Tuesday. Chief Justice Robert Young Jr. is finalizing some adoptions at the Supreme Court in Lansing, along with judges from Marquette and Saginaw.

Young hopes the public will be inspired to consider adoption or at least understand the needs of children who remain in foster care. More than 2,500 kids in foster care were adopted in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30. Another 3,000 are hoping to be adopted.

Maura Corrigan, the head of the Department of Human Services, says all children deserve a stable home.
