For more than 43 years, Arms Wide Adoption Services has provided foster care, adoption, post adoption, and post permanency services, all at no cost, to children in the Texas foster care system and their adoptive families. Since its inception in 1977, Arms Wide Adoption Services has placed more than 2,100 children from the Texas foster care system in loving adoptive families, enabling them to experience the joys of childhood in a supportive home and giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We hope you will support the children and families Arms Wide Adoption Services serves by supporting the Fulfilling Families Luncheon, which will take place on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at Houston Country Club. We are thrilled to welcome Melissa Radke as our keynote speaker. Melissa is an author, public speaker, television personality, and social media influencer whose videos have been viewed over 150 million times. However, her kids are impressed by absolutely none of this. Melissa and her husband, David, adopted their two children after years of infertility and loss. Join us for a keynote which will have you laughing, crying, and laughing until you cry as Melissa shares stories on the joys of adoption, the pains of parenting, and the mortification of hearing your daughter’s principal say, “There’s no way she’s adopted… She’s just like you.” [Organizer's description]
