"It's that time of year again when we call out for our relatives who are making their way back to the circle. We encourage birth mothers/fathers and relatives to be part of this celebration of life and healing. Dancers! Please come dance and welcome our relatives back to our circle. Adoptees, formerly fostered individuals, birth relatives, foster parents, foster youth, adoptive parents and your children - this pow wow is for you, come and celebrate and let us celebrate with you!"
