Friends of Adoption Manitoba (FAM) is an organization that I was part of establishing a couple of years ago. It started with a group of families that identified several gaps in adoption services and support in Manitoba. We are now working towards addressing these issues in our province. You can learn more about our organization at our newly launched website -

We most recently held a Candle Lighting Ceremony at the Legislative Building in Winnipeg to launch Adoption Awareness Month. We honoured adoptees and everyone who loves them. We had about 150 people attend - it was great!

Your candle lighting ceremony is such a geat idea! We will have to find something like that here in Ontario to be a part of.

What a wonderful idea. Well done! I'm sure the website will be really useful to many people.

150!!? Fantastic, I was so sorry I couldn't come down this year, but I'll be in the next year's crowd as it keeps growing! Congratulations, and thanks again for providing such an important support.
