Nick and Jessie Duke welcomed Judah into their family just days after he was born in Texas.
When the Martinez couple envisioned their family, adding children through adoption was a decision made early in their marriage. Their biological son, Robin, is almost 2 years old now.
The Duke family is one of five being assisted through the annual Trot To Adopt 5K.
Adopting 4-month-old Judah happened faster than the Dukes had anticipated and they looked to the local adoption fundraiser for assistance in recouping the cost.
