Give a child a home for the holidays

November is National Adoption Month and during this season there is nothing children want more than a family and a warm home for the holidays.

Friday morning we had Robert De Leon with Benchmark Family Services to explain the growing need for fostering and adopting a child in the Valley.

Currently they have 40 children under their care that are displaced and in need of a home.

The requirements are simple said De Leon and include being 21 or older, a stable income and having passed a background check.You can find them in McAllen on 1544 W. Dove Avenue or call them at (956)
