Organizers say the goal is celebrate all those who participate in the adoptive process, including parents and children.

“In Iowa, there are nearly 1,000 kids legally eligible for adoption from foster care and more foster parents and respite caregivers are needed,” said the executive director of the National Center for Adoption, Diana Baltimore.

Proceeds from the event will go to promoting adoption in Iowa.
