Since it’s a bazillion degrees outside (okay, maybe just 113), I’m trying to keep my mind off the heat by thinking about the fun and exciting things happening this fall. A major one is the annual Together for Adoption Conference being held HERE in Phoenix, October 21-22nd. Yay!
First, just to clear it up, this is NOT just about what most people think of when they hear the word “adoption”. It’s about the gospel and what it says about God as our Redeemer and adoptive father. It’s about how we answer the call to care for the orphan (and that can take MANY different forms). It’s about facing fears and overcoming them with knowledge.
And it’s about people. One of the most incredible things about these gatherings is the people. It’s electrifying to be in a building with over a thousand like-minded people who want to make a difference in the global orphan crisis.
I’ll be live blogging the conference as one of their featured bloggers, conducting my breakout on Creative Fundraising for Your Adoption, and attending as many great breakout sessions as I can.
Hopefully I’ll also be catching up with some online peeps. Looking forward to connecting again with some of the amazing women I got to meet and hang with last year – Kristen, Jody, Jamie, Angel…Mary are you coming? I hope some of my readers are there – if you plan on coming let me know so we can be sure to meet.
If you’re beginning to hear the cry of the orphan but just aren’t sure where you fit in, come and ask God to show you his place for you in this battle.
