I am getting excited about our upcoming mass adoption ceremony on Nov. 22. We hold it every year to celebrate National Adoption Day and it always results in an emotional validation of the work we do here at JFS.
When you work in the field of abused and neglected children, there are a lot of tough days. The thousands of children we work with each year have really sad stories behind them.
Nov. 22 is going to be a positive day — a day of celebration. Fifteen children will forever join seven families. Believe me when I tell you that what happens in that ceremony will put a smile on your face and, possibly, a lump in your throat.
I wrote about the ceremony in our latest edition of Update. You can read what I wrote at http://www.hcjfs.org/UpdateNew2013/November/Cover.htm
We are livestreaming the event. I hope you will join in the fun!
