Event Details

On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, birth families reunite with their child(ren)for a Thanksgiving meal, providing positive memories at this difficult time. Fostering Great Ideas partners with area churches to host several families who are working to reunite with their children. Volunteers bring the turkeys and the fixin’s for a family-style meal. Thanksgiving Grace offers a compassionate way to touch families in crisis.  Holidays are often tragic and painful times for children who are separated from their family. Siblings come together to celebrate the holidays with gingerbread house making, ornament decorating, pictures with Santa, and a hot cocoa bar. One of the neatest things about this event is that sibling groups get to see other sibling groups and sometimes for the first time, they feel normal. Everyone else in the room is going through the same thing they are going through. There’s a beautiful feeling of commonality in this brief moment.

How you can get involved: Donate to “Give the Gift of Family” to help sponsor the event, volunteer to help serve the meal.
