BENEFITING: Adopt International
ORGANIZER: Adopt International
As some of you know, Rachel and I sit on the board of our local adoption agency, Adopt International. It is that time of year when we are all asked to give to causes that will make a difference through the year and we’d love to tell you why we believe this is the among the most important work we support.
The most obvious place to start is that Adopt helped us create our family. We can’t emphasize how profoundly life changing this process was to us as a couple.
Adopt took us on a journey that helped us understand that adoption was first about children, then about their birth parents and THEN about us. The open adoption process that Adopt champions is about building loving communities that are focused on the wellbeing of some of our most vulnerable children and families in the Bay Area and beyond.
At Adopt, adoption is about creating deep connections and bonds between families from different economic, social and cultural worlds and giving them the choices, opportunities and lifelong support to help them build new thriving communities.
Please consider making a gift this year-end that will help us create wonderful new beginnings for many more children and families.
Adoption has been the greatest gift we have ever received and we want to ensure it remains an option for others around the world.
