Adoption Fundraiser

One of my new couples, Craig and Linda are dear friends and have opened up their home and their heart to adoption. They had a fund raising event just before Christmas that I had the honor of attending.

My very own adoption miracle, Elia Jane!

Therese and Lou Engle were able to attend this event. We are so blessed to have them in our lives and are so grateful that they carry the message of the Spirit of Adoption as they speak around the nation.
