One of the advantages of maintaining good relationship with your adoption agency is the accessibility to events and activities offered by the adoption agency for their families.
This past weekend, my family and I were able to participate at a family event organized by the EAC adoption agency, who is the agency that I used to adopt my daughter Malina.
The event took place at a recreational park in Florida, and for the first time we were able to go. The agency plans two annual events, one in Ohio, near their headquarters, and the other in Florida, near their satellite office.
The motive of the activity is for families who have adopted children from different countries can get together to meet other families and share their experiences. Also, the adoption agency has the opportunity to see the progress of the children they have helped get forever families.
The agency prepared the "Picnic" style event with burgers, hot dogs etc. We not only enjoyed the food, but also shared our experiences with other families. To my surprise, I met two Latin families with children adopted from China, which pleased me very much!
There were other Latino families with children from Russia and Europe. We left the event feeling very happy and pleased to have made new friends. Here are some pictures I would like to share with you of the event.
