First day at the Empowered to Connect conference is going great!! Thankful for all of the families that have come out to join us!!
We had a fun and fantastic time celebrating Chinese New Year! Over 15 families enjoyed fellowship, great meals and arts and crafts! Thank you to everyone who helped put this event on! This year is the year of the Rooster in China. We had four new families attend this year! We can’t wait to see new faces next year!
Save the Date!! Join us January 12th from 5-9 pm at Chipotle in Pooler for a Love One fundraiser. This is a great way to feed your family and give back to the community at the same time! Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Love One.
On September 10, Love One Inc. partnered with Heart Gallery of Georgia to host a traveling photographic gallery featuring foster children available for adoption in Georgia. The western theme was “Rounding Up Families for Adoption.” There were over 150 people who attended the event with 50 children featured in the gallery and 5 agencies to help promote adoption and foster care present. This family-friendly event focused on telling the individual stories of the children featured and the hopes of finding their forever family. For more information about adopting, fostering, mentoring, or volunteering email firstname.lastname@example.org. To view the waiting children featured in the Heart Gallery, visit the Heart Gallery of Georgia at http://www.heartgalleryofga.org.
We a great time at our Love One Neptune Park Family Day at Neptune Park at St. Simons Island. We had several families come and enjoy spending time relaxing, swimming, exploring the Island, and getting to know some of the other adoptive and foster families. The picnic area was perfect and everyone really enjoyed the water park! Looking forward to our next family water park day in 2017!
We had an AMAZING time at the Love One Adoptive and Foster Mom’s Retreat!! Our large group sessions with Lorie Newman had us all moved with the Holy Spirit, the worship music by the Late Church worship leaders was on fire, the breakout sessions were informative, and it was so nice to see other women with the same struggles, walking a similar path, to just be “real” with each other and just have time to recharge!
Thank you to all the volunteers—those who spoke, helped set up, made beds, cleaned up, made desserts, decorated, or just showed up to support the retreat. We could not have made this 1st retreat so special without your help! We hope this is just the first of many retreats to come with Love One!!! A big thank you to Laurie Schultz for getting these awesome photos! —♥ Also thank you to all the sponsors who made this retreat possible by paying it forward for another Mom to attend.
