Sum….sum….summertime!!

June 23, 2009

I can’t believe ( but am very happy about) the school year end, and the  beginning of what I hope will be a fun, warm and safe summer for us all! I have been very busy with adoption related activities…especially one that I am thrilled and pumped to tell you about!

In conjunction with the Adoption Council of Canada and The Adoption Council of  Ontario, I am helping to plan the first annual “ADOPTWALK ” to raise awareness and funding for the adoption community in Canada and Ontario. It is a 5 km walk, to take place along Port Credits ( Mississauga) beautiful waterfront on October 18th, 2009 . This will be a great launch for Adoption Awareness month in November, and we are planning to draw on participation from all over the GTA, in fact the Golden Horseshoe.

Looking forward, we hope this walk will find its way all across Canada  to each province and territory. We will need all your help to make this event a success…so if you are reading this and wish to help by registering, volunteering, being a sponsor….please do contact me through my website. I will add more details about the event soon!

The adoption support group I have begun in Oakville is underway, and we will have our third meeting this coming Monday June 29th. It is great to meet others and share experiences!
                                                                                       Have a great summer everyone!
