MANY JOINED TO PUMP UP THE VOLUME ON EMBRYO ADOPTION!
Our Southern California event to raise awareness of embryo adoption was a great success. The event was held at Pump It Up in Anaheim Hills, CA on April 28th. The children and parents enjoyed getting together. Many of them had an opportunity to talk with reporters from the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register, who in turn will share information with the public through articles in their papers about embryo adoption. Events of this type will also be held in other regions around the country. If you are interested in participating in Washington state, Georgia, Pennsylvania, or the Ohio/Indiana/Kentucky area, please let us know. We would love to have you be a part of this exciting work. You may contact Kathryn Deiters at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
On August 12th, the Colorado Event took place. There was a wonderful response, with great attendance, lots of questions asked, and many packets of information taken. Ted Harvey of the Colorado House of Representatives spoke, as did John Fuller of Focus on the Family, Ron Stoddart, and Marlene Strege (Snowflake Adopting Mom). Family News in Focus and the local television station Channel 7 covered the event.
Snowflakes kids planted trees in the Family Tree Garden at Irvine Regional Park during the Southern California Embryo Awareness event held on August 26. Congressman Ed Royce and local Assemblyman Chuck DeVore spoke on the issues surrounding embryo adoption, and many Snowflakes families were in attendance to share their experiences with this successful form of adoption.
