Celebrate Children 2010 Banquet

Adoption Ministry of Youth With A Mission held its fund-raising banquet on Saturday, October 9th at the Tacoma Convention Center.  It was an evening to 'Celebrate Children' - children brought into forever families through God's miracle of adoption. 

We celebrated both domestic and international adoption and had the opportunity to hear from a wonderful group of speakers...

Joy Casey, Ministry Director

Chris and Amy Vitzthum with birth mother - 17 year old Whitney

Brad & Amber Page
Brand new adoptive parents 

Jeff Butler
Adoptive dad and YWAM's Church Liason
Jeff and his wife Chris have 8 children, 6 of whom are adopted.

Wick Nease

And the frosting on the cake? 

Over $50,000 was raised to support the work of adoption,
both domestic and international.

To God be the glory!
