On Saturday, May 14, we welcomed over 20 families from our domestic adoption program for an adoptive family celebration at Holt-Sunny Ridge!

Parents visited with each other and reunited with their social worker while they enjoyed snacks and their babies played. Our training room was filled with laughter and love. Next time, we’ll need to hold the gathering in a larger space to accommodate our growing group! celebration

Nancy Crouch, our domestic adoption and birth parent services director, shared a slideshow featuring our domestic families who have welcomed home a baby in the past three years. We also honored Paul and Cindy Stark, licensed temporary care foster parents for Holt-Sunny Ridge.

Families interested in joining a playgroup signed up to connect with other families, and two of our adoptive moms are starting a Facebook group to help Holt-Sunny Ridge domestic adoptive families connect with each other online. If you are a domestic family with a child age 3 or younger who is interested in a playgroup, or any domestic family interested in the Facebook group, please contact Nancy Crouch at nancyc@holtsunnyridge.org to sign up.
