Last night I had the privilege and the pleasure of attending the Rollstone Foundation Gala, where my friends, John and Dawn were honored as adoptive parents of the year. If you don't know anything about this organization, they facilitate the adoption of special-needs children from impoverished countries. My friends John and Dawn, whom I've previously written about on this blog, are in the process of adopting their sixth child, their second from Ethiopia. Through their research and experiences, I have learned of the terrible hardships orphans face in Ethiopia. For many of these children, their only chance of survival is to be adopted by loving families. The Rollstone Foundation provides much needed grants to families willing to open their hearts and homes to the most needy children in the world. If you would consider opening your home to one of these children, or even making a donation to the foundation, visit their website.
