The 20th Anniversary Adoption Celebration in Fort Wayne, Indiana took place in November of 2018! Melissa Montana, President of STAR Educational Media Network WLAB/Ft Wayne (STAR 88.3), (pictured above with group) started this event shortly after she brought her daughter home from Guatemala through adoption and it has been a staple event for this outreach ever since. Her passion with this event is to bring foster and adoptive families together to form a network of relationships and resources as they go through their journey. The Adoption Celebration is also a way for families who may be interested in either fostering or adopting children to come and get information from the 11 agencies that are present and have their questions answered. The Adoption Celebration is just that – a celebration! With 2018 marking 20 years that STAR 88.3 has been serving the community in this way, Melissa chose to bring in special guest, Mark Schultz (pictured below), to share his music as well as his personal adoption story. Included in the activities was face painting, balloon art and refreshments which gives families a memory they will never forget.
