HomeGrown Event at Brix!!

 

Home Grown is an benefit for the Nebraska Children’s Home Society. At first when they asked me I thought “cool – I have friends that have wanted to adopt – sounds like a great organization”. As I toured the Children’s Home, got to know the staff, and learned more about their organization I learned that it is SO MUCH MORE than just adoptions. Not that I am a minimizing the no-fee adoptions (yes – I am serious – they don’t charge a fee!) or the amazing families that they have helped to bring together, but NCHS is more than an adoption agency. They provide pregnancy, parenting, adoption and post-adoption services; foster care; safety and in-home services; community outreach; and early childhood programming. The organization’s services are centered on creating healthy environments for kids and families.

Meeting and getting to know the staff, working and laughing with the families and listening to them share their stories was such a rewarding experience and one that I am incredibly grateful for. I would LOVE for you guys to come to the Home Grown event that is being held at Brix on October 5th from 5-9.  We have a full photography exhibit with over 18 photos on display to help tell the stories of the lives NCHS has touched. Check out their website at www.homegrownomaha.org. You can save a few bucks by getting your tickets ahead of time – or just drop in and pay at the door!

Just a peek of some of the sweeties we got to work with…
