On Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Adoption From the Heart’s annual Picnic for the second year in a row. It was a nice, cool day with lots of kids and dogs running around; there was face painting, picnic lunches, raffles and more. I enjoyed talking with some adoptive parents as well as birth families who were there. It is a great day to celebrate kids and the bonds created by the adoption process. My hope is that I’ll be attending next year’s festivities with an adopted child of my own.
