Bigger than a Brand Name

A few days ago I announced that Reece's Rainbow families were invited to a meet up in Kansas City in October. Sounds like fun, huh? I have met the absolute nicest, and most fun people through our adoption adventures. Something automatically clicks when you meet someone with the same soft spot in their heart for orphans. I honestly cannot wait!!

Highlight of our first Midwest Adoption Friends meet-up in 2010!

However, I made some critical mistakes...

First, not all of my adoption friends are Reece's Rainbow families. Forgive me for not making you feel included. I love you and I would be honored for you to join us!! Pretty please?

Secondly, there are former Reece's Rainbow families who no longer wish to be associated with the Reece's Rainbow brand. I understand. Perhaps you were disavowed, or maybe you pulled away on your own. Either way, this event is still for you. We prayed for your children...and for you! We helped raise the ransom to get those darlings home. We cried together over impossible mountains of paperwork. We are a community that is bigger than any brand name.

With these mistakes in mind, I'm inviting my adoption friends to the Midwest Adoption Friends Meet-Up on October 25-27 in Kansas City. This date coincides with the Kansas City DS Guild's Step Up Walk, so you can DOUBLE your FUN! I have a few options for this meet-up, one being rooms at the CoCo Key Water Resort! Please join us to celebrate our families and our community. We ARE bigger than any brand name.
