    May 28 Literary Adoption Event In Brooklyn

    ADOPTION LETTERS: UNSEALED-May 28, 2014 Lost Lit is thrilled to team up with Land of Gazillion Adoptees to bring you a unique spin on discussing adoption and its many shades of grey. Featured guests intimately invested in the adoption community will use the letter format to express their point of view. It’s our hope that with the co-mingling of these diverse voices, a new/different perspective about adoption will emerge for all attendees. Featuring: David Amarel, Martha Crawford, Lynne Connor, Kathryn Joyce, James Lane, Andy Marra, Joy Liebrenthal Rho, John Sanvidge. Kevin Vollmers, the mastermind behind Land of Gazillion Adoptees, will be emceeing the night. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! We want the audience to be fully engaged and involved in this discussion. After the presentations, there will be time for everyone to write their own letter to someone or a group of people and then have the chance to read their letter aloud. Since the act of writing and reading your thoughts aloud on such a loaded topic (adoption) can be intimidating, paralyzing even, we invite audience members to write their letters at home (yeah like HW), bring them in and then volunteer to read the letter aloud. OR, there will be an option to place letters in a real time mail box to be read aloud by one of the presenters. When: Wed. May 28, 2014 7:00pm ” 8:30pm Reading 8:30pm ” 9:30pm Reception Where: Grumpy Bert 82 Bond St. Brooklyn, NY 11217 Admission: FREE! (donations welcome) RSVP REQUIRED: Since seating is very limited YOU MUST RSVP. Email lynne (at) lostlit.com & provide: *First/ Last name *Email/ Phone # *If you’re bringing a guest (limit to +1) *Adoption affiliation & OR why you’d like to attend *How you found out about this event. Seat not guaranteed until confirmation email received. PRESENTERS BIOS: DAVID AMAREL is a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City.

    Connect-A-Kid: A Mentorship Program Adopted Children

    Hi, my name is Brian Conyer and I am the founder of Connect-A-Kid.  I’d like to take a moment to thank you all for your overwhelming support as we launch our team-based mentorship program across the country!  Our goal is to make our mentorship program available to all adopted children within the next several years, but we need your help.  Everything we’ve accomplished to this point has been a result of pro bono services from professionals, volunteer time from our staff, and donations from friends and family.  I’m very excited to say that we have reached a pivotal point in our organization that requires us to build a sustainable infrastructure to accomplish our goals. We are seeking $50,000 in funds to develop our mentor platform and ensure the highest quality program possible.  All monetary resources will be dedicated in 2014 to supporting Connect-A-Kid mentor teams across the US, Canada, and Korea; creating and delivering a proper mentor training program; staffing the organization with at least two part-time employees; and developing new and relevant mentor initiatives that will benefit adopted children, adult adoptees, and adoptive parents.  With your support, our future is bright.  I believe in our purpose, our people, and our future.  I am an advocate for the adopted child ” As the founder of Connect-A-Kid, it is my commitment that all of our future programs will be family-centric with the focus always on the adopted child.  To donate to our cause, please visit:  http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/connect-a-kid-mentoring-the-adoption-community/x/4876271 With Warmest Regards, Brian Conyer, Founder of Connect-A-Kid http://www.connectakid.org
