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 meaning of international adoption for each of us. It made for a powerful experience as I'm sure you can imagine.

Dillon's supporters made another powerful experience possible this year by helping fund the travel cost of two Korean birthmothers visit to the states. The women spoke to a group of adoptive parents and adult adoptees at Dillon's Korea Camp in Tulsa and again in Dallas. An audio recording of their stories will be available on the Dillon International web site soon. To learn more about their talk check out one adoptive mom's blog post at As she says, the birthmothers' stories give all of us a lot to think about.

As we reach summer's end we're falling back into a more normal schedule, as well as scheduling more Adoption Information meetings and orphanCare fundraisers nationwide. If you are interested in finding an Adoption Information meeting in your area or learning more about orphanCare please contact Caitlin Getchell at (918) 749-4600. Enjoy the last few weeks of summer vacation!

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
