.Meet the Oster Family.

Happy October everyone!!!  Our new partnering family for this month is the Oster family.  Jackie and Evan are at towards the beginning of their adoption.  I would love to help them get off to a great start.  Please visit their blog to encourage them on their journey and shop Hannah James this month to financially contribute to their adoption.
