I know there are lots of SC adoptive families in blog land and I was wondering if any of you are going to this conference in Greenville, SC. I just ran across it when a friend of mine sent me the link & I really want to attend. It looks great! Plus we are close enough that we could just drive down and drive back without having to stay overnight (although a night away with hubby doesn't sound like the worst idea lol). Let me know (jokellyne @ aol . com) if any of you are going or in the area and maybe we can meet up!
Together for Adoption Conference, Greenville, SC
Saturday, November 1, 2008
Together for Adoption wants Christians to think vertically about adoption and allow the truth of vertical adoption (i.e. God adopting them) to shape how they think about orphan care and horizontal adoption. We want Christians, whether or not they are considering adopting a child themselves, to reflect on their vertical adoption.

See what it means to reflect God’s heart for adoption in your own life and church.
