|Betsie Norris, of Adoption Network Cleveland, our hero!|
The event kicked off Thursday evening, March 19, 2015, at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Colombus, Ohio where there was a light reception, speakers, and an information table for Adoption Network Cleveland. Adoption Network Cleveland supports all members of the those in the adoption constellation. There was an open mic for first parents, adoptees and anyone else supporting the cause. Lots of crying and cheering ensued throughout the evening. In the corner of the room was a Selfie station for taking pictures and attaching the hash tag #OHadopteesROAR. There was also a banner on the wall for each adoptee to sign.
