We had a blessed time celebrating National Adoption Month with past adoptive families, and those in the process of adopting. Parents were able to network with one another, while children made new friends.

A special thank you to the ICA volunteer staff for all their hard work. We'd also like to thank Akie Horn for providing wonderful facepainting, Mrs. Angel for providing our photobooth, and Bernadette Valdez of S&B Mexican Catering Services for providing delicious food.

We pray that we will continue to see more and more families rise to the task of providing orphaned children with forever homes.
