“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

Join Kids2Families and Support Adoption through an Adoption Walk on November 3rd at Seward Park, Seattle


As you may be aware we adopted a young boy named Alex a couple of years ago.  Prior to that we started a non-profit to help displaced children around the world find families that would adopt them, and also to encourage families to consider adoption. The non-profit is called Kids2Families and you can visit our website at www.kids2families.org.

Our main fundraising event will be a family Adoption Walk held Saturday morning, Nov. 3rd.  It is going to be a 2.5 mile walk held at Seward Park in Seattle. The walk will be spectacular because the trail has a view of Lake Washington on the entire 2.5 mile loop.

Here is where I need your help.

Families who have adopted
1. Please take a brief moment to think of anyone you know who has adopted and send us their contact information so we can invite them to our Adoption Walk.  Just reply to this e-mail with their name, e-mail, address, and phone number. If you feel comfortable, give us some information about their family (number of kids, who has been adopted, etc).

Interested to learn more about the Adoption Walk
2. Let us know if you might be interested in attending the walk.  For those of you not in the Seattle are we will have a way you can participate by being a Virtual Walker.
Again, this is just an indication of interest, not a commitment at this point.  We will follow up with you soon about the walk.

3. We are seeking volunteers.  Please see our website at http://www.kids2families.org/jobs/ for job descriptions.

Thanks for taking the time to read this note, and please respond to the above so that you can help children around the world who don't have families find their family.  Feel free to forward this to family and friends so we can spread the word.

Warm regards,
Susan H. Lawrence
