Hutchinson family makes adoption of 5 children official


HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KSNW) – It’s National Adoption Day, and for one Hutchinson family, the holiday takes on a deeper meaning.

Jeremy Vanwey, a Reno County Sheriff’s deputy, and his wife, Maria DeAngelis, have been foster parents to five siblings since 2017. On Saturday, they officially adopted them.

DeAngelis says it was a long time coming.

“It’s definitely been quite a journey, and I do feel like this is closing one chapter,” said Maria DeAngelis. “There’s obviously some bittersweet just given the circumstances, but we do, we are very excited and like I said it’s a long time coming.”

The kids range in age from 1 to 6 years old.
