This is what Kelly has to say about The Sparrow Fund:
The Sparrow Fund is committed to supporting by providing grants for this purpose—grants to pay for preadoption counseling and support, medical reviews of the file of the child they are referred, and postadoption support as their child becomes part of their family. As parents to a little girl from China, we have found these services to be absolutely integral for a family adopting internationally.
As families learn more about The Sparrow Fund, applications for grants have increased. Already this year, we have given a total of 6 grants. And, we are growing our services as well, collaborating with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) Adoption Program to provide training opportunities for adoptive families. Our first training will be May 5th and is focusing on adoption related issues in the classroom (check it out here). We plan on offering opportunities like this twice a year to better equip and encourage adoptive families.
I know several families in real life and in the blogosphere who are going through the adoption process. I'm thrilled to be able to share my support in this way!!
