This Week's Wednesday's Child: Meet Brittany
Please meet Brittany! (11/01) Brittany is very outgoing and enjoys meeting new people. She has a very likeable personality and has an easy time making friends. Brittany is a good student and she takes her studies seriously. She earns good grades and wants to go to college one day. She says she thinks she might want to study culinary arts. She enjoys cooking, but says seafood is her least favorite food! Like most teenage girls, Brittany likes to get out and do fun things in her free time, like go bowling with friends. Brittany has experienced some loss in her life, but she remains optimistic and hopeful about her future. She truly wants to be adopted and to be a part of a family that loves her that she can call her forever. Do you think you might be the forever family for Brittany? Please contact SNAP today!
Adoptive Families Celebrate at Kentucky Kingdom
More than 600 adopted children and families enjoyed a perfect day at Kentucky Kingdom on Sunday, August 2. This annual Family Fun Day is made possible by your generous donations and offers families an opportunity to celebrate their common tie -- expanding their family through adoption. The families joined together for a picnic lunch in the pavilion and shared stories of hope and true love. WLKY's Liz Everman accepted a special proclamation and plaque from the mayor's office for her years of service and commitment to raising awareness about adoption of special needs children. Between the sunshine, the rides, the laughter, and the dedication of families willing to make the ultimate commitment, it was a day to remember.
If you're interested in expanding your family through adoption, please contact SNAP today!
