Upcoming Events!

It wouldn't be summer if it wasn't busy at Dillon. We just finished Korea Camp, but this year that isn't the end of our season.

Guatemala Weekend

It's March already and in the AEC last minute details for Guatemala Weekend are getting finalized. Ten families have registered so far, which means there will be at least 17 kids attending!

This year should be a blast. We're planning on learning more about Guatemala's culture and history as well as building and decorating our own Mayan temple! And will end the weekend with a celebration lunch.

Guatemala Weekend is scheduled for March 26 and 27 in Tulsa, OK and…

Celebrating your heritage

Dillon International recognized many years ago the importance of celebrating our heritages, especially in a multi-cultural family. Over the past 25 years we have done our best to provide Heritage Camps and Weekends for kids of all ages to learn about the country that they were born in, where their siblings came from or where their family's heritage began. You don't need to be a Dillon family (or even an adoptive family) to join in the fun of our camps.

If you would like more…

In the aftermath

In the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake we have gotten thousands of calls from families wanting to open there home to children orphaned by the earthquake. If you are among them, I want to take a moment to thank you for opening your generous heart to someone so in need of love. All of us at Dillon are following the situation with aching hearts.



That said, at this time we are not sure how international adoption will be affected by the earthquake. If you have questions you want… Continue

Haiti

Dillon International has supported Hope Hospital and Children's Village in Port-au-Prince, Haiti for many years. Despite the horrible devastation following the earthquake that struck Haiti yesterday evening, we are thankful that the damage to both the hospital and orphanage is minimal and the staff and children are safe. Both the hospital and the orphanage are open and helping victims of the earthquake. However, there are many needs and the hospital is already full of people needing… Continue

We are a conspicuous family.

Caring Hearts

We recently celebrated our 37th birthday here at Dillon. In 1972 our organization began by finding homes for 100 orphans from South Korea. We have grown and expanded since then, but our heart for the children has never wavered. To help with that mission several of our Caring Hearts groups held fundraising events in honor of our birthday. You can check out the photos (and learn more about Caring Hearts) at http://www.orphancareintl.org/caringhearts.htm. We raised almost $900 which will be used… Continue

Back to School

Hope everyone is having a great first few days back at school. Those of us in Tulsa started yesterday or today, but I hear that some schools aren't starting until September.

We are finishing up our 37th birthday celebration this week and have had several people decide to celebrate with Dillon by supporting our humanitarian aid program, orphanCare. We're very excited about the orphanCare program right now, because we are now in 15 countries and on almost every continent and have a great… Continue

Back to normal

It has been a crazy few months here at Dillon. We started out with Vietnam Heritage Weekend and continued the craziness with India Camp, China Camp and Korea Camp. We had more than 200 kids at China Heritage Camp this year and almost as many at Korea Heritage Camp. Both China and Korea camps were preceded by Discovery Days for teenage adoptees. Teens and staff spent a couple of night at Bridlecreek (a lodge and campsite north of Tulsa) doing everything from riding horses to delving into the… Continue
