8851: Culture camp for adopted Haitians-Bushey (fwd)
From: LauriB <LAURIB@maf.org>
I want to make the list aware of a wonderful weekend camp each July
for families with children adopted from Haiti.
My son and I have attended the camp the last 3 years and have enjoyed
the informative sessions, informal play times and of course meeting
new friends and seeing old ones. It's fun to watch these kids growing
older and at the same time encouraging them to keep some of their
Haitian heritage in front of them.
Last week this message Subject: 8843: Adoptive parents need advice
from Elizabeth asked how she can expose her adopted kids to positive
things about their birth country. Attending camps like this is one
suggestion I have.
Next summer the camp will be held July 19-21 in Alexandria Minnesota.
(that's 1 1/2 hours west of Minneapolis/StPaul).
