On July 18th approximately 90 people enjoyed a wonderful pool party and reception at the Washington, DC home of Kidsave Summer Miracles hosts, Judy Dlugacz and Claire Lucas. While the Kidsave kids swam and played, many of the guests learned about Kidsave for the first time.

 

They were treated to remarks by Claire Lucas, an adoptee herself, Senator Mary Landrieu, Terry Baugh and Diana Dombrowski. Diana was adopted in 2008 after participating in Kidsave’s Summer Miracles program. Diana spoke about her life in foster homes in Colombia, not being fed, and her adjustment to life in the U.S. – where she learned what a normal childhood should be and how to trust. Her mom focused on academics, her dad on sports. As a result Diana was offered a full-ride scholarship, as a junior, to play field hockey at Slippery Rock University.

 

Bravo Diana, and A “big thank you” to Claire and Judy.
