“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Bridge to Adoption

Hello fellow adoption families!

We want to invite you all to a great advocacy opportunity.  We (Andrew and Janetta) are hosting a race on Saturday, August 11th to raise funds for our second adoption through LDSFS, and also to really focus on getting the word out about adoption. We hope both adoptive families and birth parents will be interested in attending.  Please invite your friends, family and birth parents, if possible.  We are very excited about this!  

There are at least 3 ways adoptive families can be involved with our race.

1. Sign up to race with us on Saturday, August 11, 2012.
2. We are inviting each fellow-adoptive family that would like to, to please submit an 8x10 family photo.  We will be posting them along the race route.  No names will be posted on the photos.  Please email us a high res file, or mail an 8x10 to us directly at:
Bridge #3 on the race course.
Bridge to Adoption 5K
P.O. Box 5783
Lynnwood, WA 98046

3. Consider volunteering on race day.  Volunteers would distribute participant race bags, help direct runners/walkers along the route, hand out water/Gatorade, help at the finish line, etc.

And a last way to be involved would be to help us spread the word.  We would love our event to be well-attended.  If you would consider handing out printed flyers to your ward, family, and friends, please let us know and we will get a stack to you.  If you would consider blogging or Facebooking about our race, that would be great!  Please visit and include the link to our site when spreading the word. bridgetoadoption.blogspot.com

We really appreciate you helping us get the word out.  We have special wrist bands for adoptive families participating in our event.  We hope to get as many adoptive families involved as we can, whether you come race with us, or send us a photo, or BOTH!!
If you have any questions feel free to contact us (Andrew and Janetta) directly at: bridgetoadoption@gmail.com
