I love celebrating adoptions with families at the Albemarle Courthouse in Historic Court Square. My favorite part of the tradition is probably the ringing of the bell! Back in the day, before cell phones and email, the bell was used to notify people court was in session. Now, the newly adopted young person rings the bell the same number of times as their age. It is so fun!
