Kinship Center staff members were in the audience at the taping of the 14th annual “Home for the Holidays” TV special. For those of you interested in adoption, this yearly show is not to be missed. The show is a celebration of adoption and the families that have opened their home to a child or children. Having a program that celebrates building families through adoption allows adopted children to feel special and it brings attention to the joyfulness that adoption can bring. Who wouldn’t like that?
On top of all of the above, you get to hear some amazing musical artists who perform their latest hits between touching stories of adoption. This year country music group Rascal Flatts headlined the show. Also performing was American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips singing his hit song, “Home”. Melissa Ethridge and Matchbox 20 rocked the show and had the audience on their feet. X-Factor contestant Rachel Crow is a 14 year old adoptee. Her adoption story was highlighted and then she belted out a song that displayed her strong voice.
It is a priviledge to be part of the community of adoption. Kinship Center and our employees that work with the program Wendy’s Wonderful Kids (WWK) participate in this event every year. WWK along with Children’s Action Network make sure that there are children who are available for adoption highlighted within the show. The hope is that these children are seen for the wonderful, funny and adorable people that they are. There has been much success with placing these children into homes after this program.
