“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

How Will You Celebrate November's National Adoption Month??

Here are a few ideas on places you can go to celebrate with others!

Attend the FSA Northwest Regional Conference in Portland, Oregon.
Saturday, November 10th.
9:30 am - 5 pm
Rock Creek LDS Chapel
19180 NW West Union Rd.
Portland, OR 97229 
Join DSHS and many foster and adoptive parents on Thursday, November 15th at 4 PM at the Thurston County Juvenile and Family Courthouse (located at 2801 32nd Avenue SW, Tumwater, WA 98512).  They will hold thier annual Adoption Day Celebration. Four families will be finalizing their adoptions that day in open court. There will be refreshments and activities for the kiddo’s (Hands On Children’s Museum, Booker T Bear etc) after their finalizations.
This is an amazing public event that showcases foster care adoption with a public hearing. It is a great way for adoptive parents to talk to their kids about adoption. I encourage all of you to stop by and support these local families on this day!!
