If you haven't signed up already, you will not want to miss the
Together for Adoption Conference 2009 in Franklin at Christ Community Church on October 2-3.   This will be an incredible conference that will educate and empower us all to fulfill God's plan for His church to provide families, love and care for the millions of orphans in the world.
Childcare is available. 

The annual Tennessee Adoption Bike Tour celebration will be in downtown Nashville at Bicentennial Mall on Friday, October 9 starting at 4:30 pm.  The Adoption Celebration will begin with welcoming the cyclists who are concluding their bike ride across the state to raise awareness for adoption. We'll cheer them on, enjoy bounce houses, face painting, and games for the kids, hear from adoption advocates, and listen to music from Nashville singer/songwriter, Randall Goodgame!  

Not only is this a great time to celebrate your own family, but it is an opportunity to bring out those families considering adoption and allow them to see what a strong and supportive adoptive community we have in the Middle Tennessee area!  It is going to be a great event, celebrating a great cause, with such a wonderful community of children & families! We hope that you will be able to join us for the evening!  

This is the 5th year for the Adoption Bike Tour sponsored by the Department of Children's Services. Bikers ride across the State of Tennessee to raise awareness for adoption.

Until they all have a family--

  1. Just a little correction...the sale is taking place at Ashford Place, but that's not where we live. It probably doesn't matter but just wanted to clarify. Another family is hosting the sale at their house.

    Thanks, Jo Franklin
