Adoption Awareness Picnic

Adoption Awareness Picnic

Adoption AwarenessThe Rotary Club of West El Paso helps to sponsor an annual Adoption Awareness picnic in conjunction with the Texas Dept of Family and Protective Services.

Armed with the concept of Service Above Self , one man, Lionel Betancourt, with the help of one small club in San Benito, Texas,  embarked on what has led to this major program developing in the USA. This program simply is one that honors children who have been taken from their parents for reasons of abuse or neglect and placed in foster care. It is a party for them once a year. It is a venue that provides a special time for prospective adopting parents to observe those who are the few who will never be allowed to return to their birth parents. It is there we find special children in the direst of needs AND special people who need a special child to complete their family.
