A special thank you to all the families who attended the Latin American Fiesta.
It was great to see so many adult adoptees present!!
A most enjoyable evening - great company, good food, amazing music and lots of fun dancing.

You can view some on the image on the link below.
Hopefully next time we will see a few more people joining the event.
Thank you to Hernan Restrepo our caterer, and to Kathy Blanter and Sue Hancock for helping organise the night.
