Eighteen years ago, Tamara followed through with her adoption plan. She gave a childless couple an indescribable gift - a newborn daughter. She acknowledged that her choice was a precious gift to this couple but her thoughts were on her child. Tamara was divorced with small children at home. She simply could not take care of another child on her own. Her memories of that day, and many days since, were focused on that tiny baby girl in a pink hat. Did she feel loved? Was she safe and happy? Did she wonder why her birthmother chose adoption? She never held her daughter because she knew it would be too hard to let her go.
Yesterday, Tamara met Tiffany. She leaned over to hug her daughter and with tears flowing said, "I finally get to touch you."
This may be the very first adoption ever facilitated by Living Hope Centers! To hear more of this amazing story, including how Tiffany's birth sister ended up living at Hope House, make plans to attend one of our annual fundraising banquets. You may even get to meet them!
Remember, we don't sell individual tickets to our banquets. To attend you must either 1) sponsor a table for $200.00 and invite friends to come with you or 2) be invited by someone who has sponsored a table. Table sponsors cover the cost of the event allowing all funds raised to go directly to the mission of Living Hope Centers!
To sponsor a table, CLICK HERE. You will be directed to an online giving page. Simply complete the form by giving $200.00 and selecting the banquet you wish to attend: Show Low, Round Valley or Phoenix. Once you have done that, we will email you further instructions.
