“The first time we saw the boys, it was at a park with their social worker. Brian came running up to me and gave me a big hug and there were tears of joy. I knew at that moment that I had found my sons.

Join us for an inspirational
virtual evening on November 4th!


This year our virtual fundraising event celebrates National Adoption Month and every family’s Wayfinder Moment: that moment in your journey that your family will never forget.

Our “Wayfinder Moment” came to us when we joined Wayfinder Family Services. Together, our organizations are stronger than ever, and we are helping even more children and families across California. Our family has grown!

This year’s virtual event will include photos and videos of our families describing their #WayfinderMoment, incredible live auction items and ways that you can help adoptive and kinship families and children in foster care!

Registration is now open, so check out some of those Live Auction prizes and see what your donation to our Fund-a-Need will do to help children and families! Go to our event portal for all the details!

Preshow starts at 5:45pm, then the event will be from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.


Want to join in on the fun?

Please submit a short video or photo describing your #WayfinderMoment. The top three submissions will be aired at the event on November 4th and winners will receive a prize!

We will also share your photos and videos on our social media to raise awareness for National Adoption Month. 

1) Be as creative and silly as you like

2) Videos must be 30 seconds max
