GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) -- Families across Michigan are welcoming new additions as the state celebrates its eighth annual Adoption Day.

Thirty counties are holding events on or about Tuesday, which the Detroit Legal News says is the date the Michigan Supreme Court has formally designated as "Michigan Adoption Day."

The Muskegon Chronicle reports Judges Jon Hulsing and Mark Feyen are set to officiate over several adoption finalization proceedings in Ottawa County on Tuesday.

WHTC-AM in Holland says Adoption Day's goal is to spotlight efforts to find new homes for foster and orphaned kids by publicizing what normally are private hearings.

The state Department of Human Services says close to 100 children are to be adopted, including five in Macomb, eight in Oakland and 15 in Wayne counties.
