The Embrace/Second Story "Child to Family Connection” event is an incredible opportunity to hear the stories of children, right here in our community, waiting to be adopted from foster care. Unlike traditional "match events", the children are not present. Instead, children are represented with portraits, videos and display tables representing their unique personality, interests and dreams. Children's adoption caseworkers and CASA volunteers are also present to share, firsthand, about each child.

This event is free to attend. RSVP/tickets are required for all guests. Dinner is provided for all attendees. No childcare is provided, and no children may attend. A panel of speakers, including adoptive parents and adult adoptees, will present during dinner. Following the presentation, the child display and exhibit area will open and an information meeting about adopting from foster care will take place for unlicensed families.
