WE HAVE AN ADOPTION IN THE HOUSE!
On Monday, the Bigornia family celebrated as Halo Evans took on their last name. This special day was shared with Aldea staff and the Bignornias' family members and friends. Everyone was happy to see Halo with her forever family and got to watch and listen as her sister shared the heartfelt song she wrote her. Aldea is grateful to have been a part of this adoption and wishes the Bigornia family the best!
