As a social worker, I have worked closely with MARE and have seen the power of this organization to recruit permanent families, through innovative campaigns, for waiting children. I recall one family that contacted the office after they had seen a waiting child in the Sunday Globe and knew that they were going to be his family...and now they are! There are hundreds of stories just like this, and MARE strives to match each waiting child with a permanent family. It is my dream that we can create a loving home for each of the children, teens, and sibling groups who are now waiting for a permanent home.
Thank you for sponsoring my walk on May 21st. Please consider joining us for the 2017 Jordan's Walk/ Run for Adoption benefiting MARE, from 10AM to 1PM at Jordan's Furniture in Taunton.
I am very excited to be part of this year's event and I hope you will join me in supporting MARE's work finding adoptive homes for children in foster care.
I am grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word. Use these hashtags to promote the event on social media - #iwalkforadoption and #WalkRunAdopt.
