Adoption Party at The Holden Chapel
Here’s an opportunity to meet the child you’ve been waiting for! We are planning a great day for the kids, and you are invited to join the fun, meet many of the area’s waiting children, and talk with their social workers. So come out to Holden and have some pizza and some fun! You might just fall in love!
Open to Families who have already begun the Adoption Process
We ask families attending the party to please bring a nut-free dessert or healthy snack to share.
This party is rain or shine as we have access to an indoor facility on the premises.
