The Celebration of Family festivities are a joy-filled opportunity to honor families and the difference they make in children’s lives and in our future as a society prior to the premiere of STUCK, a prize-winning documentary on international adoption.
Families of all sorts are welcome, regardless how they were formed – families with birth children, adopted children, awaiting children – to take part in light refreshments and a time together as a community.
Part of the celebration is a free family portrait by photojournalist Jessica Rose. We encourage adoptive families who are still waiting for their child, to bring a picture of their loved one so that he or she may be included in the portrait. The digital portrait is complimentary, however we will request permission to use the celebration of family portrait on the STUCK Tour website to promote the important of family for a child.
Various local and national celebrities will be making appearances at the Celebration of Family gatherings.
