Gloomy skies and wet weather didn't stop a balloon launch Wednesday in Angelina County.
Case workers with Children's Protective Services hosted the event called "Elevating the Lives of Children."
Blue balloons were released to honor adopted and foster kids in our area. Right now, about 35 families in Angelina County provide homes for these children. The balloon launch was a tribute to kids still in need of a safe home.
