Adoption Awareness Month is in November and we have BIG plans to celebrate but we need your help to make it a success. What do we need exactly? We need photos, videos, or stories that show how adoption has impacted your life. If you are interested in sharing your story, we have created a questionnaire that will help us tell your story. No names will be used and you can see an example of what a story might look like to the right. You can also send your info to Sarah Baird by . Thanks in advance for helping us celebrate Adoption Awareness Month!clicking the button below.

We LOVE sharing stories of families created through adoption and from the feedback we get from you, they are the most popular stories for you to read each month. If you are one of our adoptive families and would let us profile your family in an upcoming newsletter, please reach out to David Quirk and he will be happy to go over the process with you. You can share as little or as much of your adoption story as you want and you will get to approve your story befre it goes out. Thank you in advance for helping us tell the stories of adoption!

Birth Mother Retreat

We held our annual Birth Mother Retreat earlier this month and it was a HUGE success. The ladies were able to getaway for a relaxing weekend at a hotel that included lots of food, massages, painting, and just a chance to get away and talk with other women who all have a shared experience of placing a child for adoption. The theme for the weekend was "Worthy" and was focused on Psalms 139:14 - "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

Thanks to everyone who gave to make this event possible. We appreciate you so much!
