Relive BraveLove’s Dream A Little Dream Party
This time last month, we hosted a fundraising party to shine a positive light on adoption in Dallas and beyond. Nearly 300 guests from across the metroplex joined us for a night of festivities to celebrate November’s National Adoption Month at 3015 at Trinity Groves.
The Drop Box: a documentary worth talking about
This award-winning documentary is about a South Korean pastor who has cared for 594 abandoned babies that have been placed in his church’s drop box, or baby box. The documentary shows the challenges, love and purpose behind Pastor Lee’s work.

We visited with some of our existing partners and then connected with over 100 different pregnancy centers for the first time.

BraveLove is on a mission, and we are getting closer to releasing the details of our newest project to all of you! Last month, we hosted our third Roundtable discussion to build upon ideas gathered from our previous Roundtable held in April.
Debrief from CAFO Summit, Chicago
Last week was our first time to attend the CAFO Summit Conference, and it certainly exceeded our expectations. CAFO is an alliance that brings together individuals and organizations from all different child welfare groups across the globe.
Our second Roundtable
The purpose of the Roundtable was to discuss the state of adoption education and then pitch one of our BraveLove projects for the year. For an hour and a half over lunch, we discussed some hard-hitting questions and gathered feedback from this focus group.

And Valentine’s seemed like a fitting time to acknowledge this different kind of adoption love story.
