Bow Ties & Pearls Gala

As you all know, Shannon, Mrs. International, does a lot of work spreading awareness about adoption. She is a spokesperson for the National Counsel for Adoption and as such was invited to attend their 30th Anniversary Bow Ties & Pearls Gala in Washington, DC. Lucky for me, she extended an invitation to my boyfriend Sebastien & I as well. We were both excited to dress up all fancy & support this wonderful organization.

I got to meet a lot of important people at this gala! Everyone was so welcoming and open in sharing their stories of how they are connected to the cause – whether they are adopted or have adopted a child of their own. It was really touching to be in a room where everyone felt so much passion for adoption and the wonderful things it can do for a child! Thank you again, Shannon for inviting us!
