2011 - Crossroads Family Fun Night

A Fantastic Evening for a Great Cause!
Family Fun Night was a fund-raising event for Crossroads Adoption Services. This is the agency that we used when we were adopting Madeleine and Gabriel. We have been involved with their organization since 2005. They are very important to us, and were instrumental to building our family. The event was held at Pinstripes Bowling Alley in Edina (the fanciest bowling alley I have ever seen). It was a great night and the kids were included as part of the event which I thought was really cool. It was a pleasure to see all the families that had been united by this fine organization. The kids loved it, all of Maddy's "cousins" (those who were adopted with her from Chongqing, and whose families we keep in contact with were there). Maddy, Mia, Mikayla and Isabel had a great time. The younger siblings also had such fun together. It is really a pleasure to watch Nora and Gabe get along so well. I think they must have played the prize wheel about a million times. Besides bowling, good food and good company, they had kids activities and prizes. They also had a silent auction (yes, we won a few items). If you want to learn more about the agency, adoption, or are interested in donating to a very worthy cause - just follow the Crossroads logo to link to their sight and find out more.
