Gift of Adoption Fair
March 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Grace House Ministries’ Gift of Adoption Fair will run from 2-4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 25 at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center, 1400 Texas Drive in Weatherford.
“This is a simple and casual event, but it results in a safe space for people to learn how to build their families,” said event organizer Jessica Lambiase. “We have received several comments from past attendees that this event gave them what they needed to start the adoption or foster care process for their family.”
This is the fourth Adoption Fair Grace House Ministries has hosted and will feature representatives from adoption and foster agencies, adoption attorneys, and families who have successfully adopted. The event creates an opportunity for community members who are considering adopting or fostering to start conversations with agencies in a low-key environment.
“Twenty-five years ago, several women in Weatherford started providing pregnancy tests out of their homes for young girls,” Lambiase said. “It was their vision of loving care for these women that inspired others in our community to create an integrated approach to building stronger families. That vision includes promoting adoption.”
The fair is come-and-go and it is a free event; there is no registration. Attendees will be entered to win a one hour massage with By Faith Massage Therapy in Weatherford.
Participating agencies include Brown Pruitt Wambsganss Ferrill & Dean; A World for Children; ACH Child and Family Services; Buckner Adoption Agency; CASA Weatherford; Catholic Charities Dallas; Christian Homes and Family Services; Covenant Kids; Lifetree Adoption Agencies; New Horizons; and Upbring Foster in Texas.
