This was a magical night. The second annual “Indian Festival of Lights” can’t come soon enough

We invite all to come enjoy a beautiful evening with members of the COTW staff. Bond with families at all stages of the adoption process.  Or come to learn more about Children of the World and International Adoption.

This is a casual and relaxed event for families to gather, fellowship, and experience Indian Culture.  Activities will begin at the park with desserts, fun, and a Bollywood dance instructor. At 7:45, the group will make their way to Fairhope Pier and release family lanterns over Mobile Bay.
