SKIIN’ WITH THE GALILEAN – JUNE 20-21

 

We are pleased to announce that again this summer, an amazing group of community volunteers (all background checked) are putting on Skiin’ with the Galilean Wednesday June 20 & Thursday June 21 at Lake Marble Falls. Skiin' with the Galilean (SWTG) is a Christian ministry designed to serve youth currently in foster care by providing them with: a safe, fun-filled day of water skiing, wakeboarding, boat rides and tubing; fun and games with a biblical message; lunch AND dinner. All at no cost to the foster children or their families!

 

 

Spaces are limited and always fill up quickly, so RSVP soon! To sign up, please emailevent-rsvp@adopttexas.org and we’ll send you the required registration information. Also check out the SWTG website at austinswtg.org for additional information.

Congratulations parents Kim and Bobby Burklund on the addition of such a fine young man to your family. We wish you all much happiness!

 

 

FOREVER FAMILIES – WATCH THESE NEW SEGMENTS

 

Forever Families child profile segments air on Time Warner Cable’s YNN channel every Sunday. We strive to make the filming experience fun and special for the profiled child. We do an activity in which the child has expressed an interest to give viewers a glimpse of the child’s personality.

 

 

We deeply appreciate the time, generosity, and kindness our hosts extend to the children each week. We’d like to thank the filming hosts recognized below and encourage you to watch the corresponding Forever Families segment if you haven’t already by clicking on the child’s name or photo:

 

 

   Lacarya & Cardaesia at the Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo

   Josiff at the Austin Nature Center

 

 

 

 

   Cecilio, Maria & Timothy at the Austin Zoo

 

 

 

 

All Forever Families segments can be also be viewed from the Adoption Coalition’s website and are posted weekly on our Facebook page.
