When

Thursday 5 March from 10:30am to 12pm

The desire to be a parent can be a powerful emotion. It drove Anne and Alan to keep going after the death of their first child, and the miscarriages and unsuccessful IVF attempts that followed. Their dream was eventually realised through inter-country adoption.

Although they thought they were well prepared when they drove through the gates of the orphanage in Manila, in fact they knew very little about the reality of bringing 2 young siblings from a very different culture into their lives. Almost everything about their new lives was scary, and there was so much for them all to learn.

Anne and Alan’s adoption experience was everything they hoped for, but the journey was rarely what they expected. Travel along with them to discover how they used their love for each other and their incredible strength to build enduring bonds of love and trust with their children, overcoming tremendous odds to form a family that belonged together.

There will be a morning tea provided. This event is in celebration with International Women’s Day.
