Adoptive family to help light state Christmas tree

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin will get some special help when she lights the state Christmas tree next month.

A couple from Noble with five adopted sibling children will help Fallin light the tree on Dec. 2 on the south steps of the State Capitol building.

Bryan and Donna Komers became foster parents through the Department of Human Services in 2013. The adoption of the five siblings was finalized in June. And Fallin says the Komers are a great example of what the holiday season is all about.

Fallin says the Komers’ gift of absorbing the children into their family is priceless because it will give them stability and an opportunity to pursue their dreams.

There are currently more than 300 children in DHS custody who are legally eligible for adoption.
