Adoption Choice, Inc. receives gifts from local elementary school!

Recently, Assistant Director, Beth Garbe, had the privilege of receiving some handmade gifts from a couple 5th grade students at Chappell Elementary School in Green Bay.

On May 24, 2017, Assistant Director, Beth Garbe, was invited to come to Chappell Elementary School in Green Bay to receive a special gift.

Fifth grade teacher, Kelly Hohman, greeted them along with a group of students. These students had chosen to research the topic of adoption for their exhibition project.  Without any assistance, these curious students found the Adoption Choice, Inc. website and located our agency wish list.  They wanted to do more than their assignment required and wanted to make a difference.  It was agreed upon within this group that they would make cork boards for the agency.

After answering some of their questions regarding adoption, Beth was presented with the beautifully made cork boards and explained they are to be given to the next four children who are adopted “So they can hang pictures of their birth family and adoptive family and always have them close”, said one of the students.

We have some adoption finalization court hearings occurring in June and those children will be the lucky recipients of the special cork boards!

Thank you to Mrs. Kelly Hohman at Chappell Elementary and her students for thinking of us!

Bowling For Babies 2015

Adoption Choice, Inc. recently held its 2nd Annual Bowling for Babies event. The event is held in November, National Adoption Awareness Month, and helps to raise awareness of issues of adoption, particularly the number of children in foster care waiting for loving, permanent homes.

The day was filled with fun, bowling, eating, and silent auction items. Below are a few pictures from day.  We look forward to holding the event again in 2016!!

If you are an expectant parent or birth parent and have any questions about the adoption process, please call an Adoption Counselor at 1-800-255-6305, or send us a text message. A counselor is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. In no way does contacting us commit you to an adoption plan; it simply allows us to help provide you some information to help you make a decision that is in you and your child’s best interest.

If you are an adoptive parent and have questions about the process, please call one of our locations to speak with an Adoption Choice, Inc. staff member.
