Statewide children in need of families

By Argen Duncan: PNT senior writer

When they needed a permanent family, three of the five children decided they wanted Sherill and Alan Wofford of Portales to become their parents.

So they called and made the request.

Unbeknownst to the children, the Woffords had already started the adoption process.

“It’s good,” Maddison, 9, said.

Not every child is so fortunate.
