|My mom, grandma & sisters & I circa 1982|
I’m adopted. It’s not hard to figure that out when you look at a picture of my family. I was in the foster care system for about three months until my parents welcomed me into their family. (Their second adoption in 18 months.) Since I have such a personal connection with adoption and the foster care system, I was so excited to be invited by the non-profit, Faith Hope Adoption, to their Best Desserts fundraiser. (Ok…I was excited about the dessert part too.)

To top off the fabulousness of the night, the MC, Dolvett Quince, arrived in fantastic style…in a helicopter! The trainer from NBC’s “Biggest Loser”, Dolvett is probably not used to being in the company of so much sugar but his smooth personality worked the room like the pro he is. As somone who was in the foster care system, he seemed genuinely happy to be using his time and talent to further the cause of Faith Hope Adoption. I love when celebs give back!
