Families Supporting Adoption National Conference

Greg and I have been attending the FSA National Conference, and it has been wonderful!  Sister Julie B. Beck was the opening speaker, and she was (as always) fabulous.  One concept she talked about was interesting; she said that when the Relief Society first officially organized a Social Services division in the 1920s, the main focus was on parent-less children, orphans because of disease or war, who needed families to live with.  Today, the focus of LDS Family Services is on child-less parents, and creating families through the miracle of adoption.

Hailey took excellent care of Ellie and Lynlee, and Greg & I are already looking forward to next year!
