next year’s Event details coming soon!

“I was excited to go to a place where all the supports I need are all in one place! Usually my little one will last 20-30 mins at an event like this.  Three hours later we were still networking with all the amazing people you had at the [Nurture the Dream Event]. Everyone was willing to take the time, meet you, hear your story and offer advice. My daughter loved all the activities you had from the dancing to the video games, face painting and the character meet and greet. Out of all the events I have attended the past 3 years as an adoptive parent, I think that by far this one was the best. Thank you so much for putting it on and I hope you continue to do it and grow it. Well done!” – Sarah Inglis, Adoptive Parent

“Sometimes it is the small things that are the biggest. I was reminded of this yet again over the weekend where I had the opportunity to participate in the inaugural event for Nurture the Dream.  I had the sincere privilege of hearing brave men and women share their stories.  I witnessed families and small children enjoy with excitement, face painting, video games, free toys to be won and time together as family and friends.” The Optimistic Mama, Nurture the Dream Exhibitor
