3rd Annual Gingerbread Run for Adoption

National Adoption Month
Since its inception, our lil' fam has been honored to speak at the statewide Gingerbread Run/Walk for Adoption.

The 5k raises money to promote foster care and adoption as positive options to grow Iowa families.

There's something about seeing so many of your friends and family members in a sea of hundreds of strangers who all share a similar heart for adoption.

Phil, Lindee (sister) and Raegan of Clive; Jess and Joe (brother) of Pella; Sara and Greg (cousin) of Waverly; with our family.
It's pretty powerful.

Our dear friends Miki and Tyler with their son Jonah of Cedar Falls.
Every year we meet new people, see familiar faces and love on families that have grown and children who have found their forever families.

We are grateful for the opportunity recognize adoptees, birth families and foster and adoptive families in the state of Iowa.
It's an honor to be part of this village.
