Just hosted the National Jewish Fertility Network video conference about adoption. Experts represented an amazing array of approaches – adoption agency, adoption support, law firm, and Jewish adoption advocacy. Indeed adoption is a very Jewish and beautiful pathway to parenthood. These experts helped educate Hasidah and others in the Jewish community supporting family building. We learned more about the benefits, issues, and challenges of adoption as well as how to support those considering adoption.
The Medical Clinic in Paynesville, Liberia opened in January, 2011. This year saw hundreds of patients treated, babies born and wonderful service to the needy in this area. We congratulate the doctors, nurses and staff of the Paynesville Clinic. ReclaimKids supported this effort with a well, water tower and tank, and a generator to supply good water to the clinic. We were able to send a forty foot shipping container with medical supplies, as well as donating two “Lab in a Suitcase” kits to enable health care in areas where there is no clinic. We look forward to a continuing involvement in this fruitful area of the ReclaimKids efforts.
