Birthdays! Birthdays are a big part of any child's life. Many of our children have not had their birthdays celebrated before they came to us. We want to make sure each and every one of them understands how big of a deal it is that they were born and that they have a special day of each year to celebrate this miracle. It is amazing how so much joy a simple cake and gift brings to each of our 50 kiddos on their birthday. With so many kids in the house we celebrate a lot of birthdays but this month one of our now 11 year old boys celebrated his first birthday with us! He was beyond thrilled that we took the time to ask him what gift and what flavor of cake he would like. Thank you to all who have given to the Enrichment Fund that supports each child's gift and cake that makes them feel extra special on their big day. 14th Philippine Global Constitution on Child Welfare Services In September our Director and two Social Workers were able to attend the14th Philippine Global Constitution on Child Welfare Services. It is an international event where social workers who handle adoptions come together every two years from all over the world to visit the Philippines to discuss and share about adoption. The event's theme this year was "Prevention of Illegal Adoption and Disruptions." We are thankful for these kinds of opportunities that allow our staff to become more educated on how to better serve our children. J's Adoption! J went home with his forever family on September 12th!
