Babies are beautiful! Babies need love! Babies need a family! These are a few of the things an organization like Wyoming Children’s Society works on for the rest of us.
My brother adopted a baby from Wyoming Children’s Society a few years ago. Once you have an adopted baby in your family you start to realize how common adoption is in our community. I am thankful for the hard work, dedication and love of the people running this organization and their volunteers show every day! What a joy it is for a family to have the blessing to raise a child. How wonderful for a mother to have the option of adoption. And how wonderful that the baby has a chance.
Wyoming Children’s Society was started in 1911. It is the oldest non-profit adoption agency in the state of Wyoming. It’s amazing to see an organization that is more than 100 years old still going strong. There is such a need for bringing babies and families together. In 2014, Wyoming Children’s Society opened a new branch in Colorado.
This year’s gala honored Carol Burman Lindly, who is retiring after her years of service and support. Congratulations and we wish you the best.
The society offers adoption services, pregnancy support services, domestic infant, waiting child and inter-country adoption services. Each year the Wyoming Children Society hosts a gala to raise money to support the services they offer. According to the online bidding, the 111th annual Gala raised $89,000! This year the event was held on Saturday, August 27 at Little America. We’re thankful for the opportunity to be a bronze sponsor and to be a small part of an evening serving women, children, and families!
