GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s helps kids find homes no matter what time of year it is. But their mission is even more special in November, when we celebrate “National Adoption Day.”

The organization is holding its 6th Annual Images of Adoption event on Thursday, Nov. 9. It runs from 5 to 7 p.m. at D.A. Blodgett’s location on Leonard Street.

The Paulateer family will be speaking at the event. They have 11 kids — four born to them and seven added to their family through adoption.

It is not necessary to RSVP.
