Backyard Theater- Adoption Fundraiser

Tonight Taylor and Isabelle, along with their amazing cousins Sophia, Michaela and Sona, and super cool friend Breanne Dinsmore put on an INCREDIBLE adoption fundraiser. All of the kids are from adoptive families and have the true “spirit of adoption” burning on their hearts. Their goal is simply to raise funds so they can give to adoptions and buy things that adopted children need: clothes, toys, etc. These are pre-teens that are already living out James 1:27 in their daily live as they love and care for younger their younger siblings.
Completely on their own, the organized an incredible evening! After a few brainstorming sessions, they got to work. Taylor wrote scripts for two short plays, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “France in the Backyard.” The girls got busy gathering props and costumes, as well as gathering items to sell at their auction. Taylor created an “Evite,” sent out invitations and made flyers and tickets for the event.

The night went off without a hitch. They did an amazing job. We are so proud of these kids. They really are amazing.

The audience waiting for the show to start!

Our kids are passionate about adoption. They have incredible hearts for the orphan. If you are in the midst of adopting or involved in adoption ministry, get your kids involved. Let them partner with you by putting their creativity to work with events like this one, car washes, garage sales, or whatever their BIG hearts dream up!
