Orphans & adoption

Yes, two posts in one day! Who knows what tomorrow will bring??

There are a couple ways you can help an orphan in the month of November.
Our adoption agency, AWAA, is hosting a Gala called "Orphan's Ticket home in
San Antonio, Texas on Friday, November 21st
and in
Beaufort, South Carolina Saturday, November 8th, 2008.

Please consider attending one of these events. All proceeds raised will help:
  1. provide the necessary legal services and documentation to help orphaned children become eligible for adoption.
  2. open America World Adoption programs in Bolivia, Brazil, India, Rwanda, and Vietnam
  3. rebuild a children's home in rural Ethiopia that receives abandoned children from the government.
  4. develop an Older Children's Cultural Exchange Program in Ukraine and Russia
You can read more about the Gala and reserve your seat or table at: orphanstickethome.org.

Are you interested in adoption but don't know where to start?
