SYSK: Haleigh Steere helps families adopt African children

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Haleigh Steere now lives in Ames, but was recently back home in eastern Iowa for a craft show at the UNI Dome. Haleigh was at the show selling handmade, African-themed items and CDs.

The CD, "Lullabies for Africa," and all the other items are raising money for families hoping to adopt children from Africa.

"This was kind of an idea I had. I love to sing. I love to write music," said Haleigh Steere.

Haleigh said she has several friends hoping to adopt, and making the CD was one way she could help.

The Waverly native said all the songs are original lullabies.

"It's a collaboration album. It's not just me on it. It's a number of my family members, my friends," said Steere.

The three songs Haleigh wrote were inspired by her one-year-old niece.

The "Lullabies for Africa" CDs are $20 each.

Initial proceeds go to fund a Christian Mission Aid trip to Kenya, which Haleigh leaves for Wednesday, November 9th.

Then, all proceeds and donations go to families currently in the process of adopting children from Africa.

"I've just gotten to see families adopt, and the blessings and the really cool experience it is," she said.
