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!
Thanks to all who stopped by to see us
