November is National Adoption Month. Today is National Adoption Day.
Amber Marshall Baker, Kelby Dye and MaeLeigh Dye are Bingham County residents who shared their adoption stories.
Amber Marshall Baker was 8 1/2 months old when she was adopted by Doyle and Ila Marshall.
When she joined the family, she gained an older brother, Travis. He had also been adopted by the Marshalls.
"My life has been blessed beyond measure from the gift of being adopted," said Baker.
THOMAS â€” It took a little while longer for Snake River's opening night as the start time to the game was delayed by the opening games but when the contest finally tipped off, the Lady Panthers wasted little time dismantling South Fremont as they cruised to a 57-38 opening night victory.
"Defense, defense, defense. That's what we are and every team calls it something different but to us it's Panther defense and I think that we set that tone early and often," Snake River head coach Rich Dunn said. "Last year on opening night after the first quarter it was 4-2 so tonight really shows, second year for most of these kids in the program in which we all are more on the same page. Every body participated in the summer program and even though it was South Fremont's second game of the season, they were the ones that looked rusty not us."
