“Children Around the World” is a booth for children to visit and learn about how children in other countries live. A passport will be handed to the children at registration. The child will take the passport to the exhibit hall, as he/she goes to the various booths with their parents, they can ask the representative to initial the passport. Once they have at least five booths initialed, they can bring the passport to the Children Around the World booth for a prize.

Deak Family Testimony
Although our adoption process officially started in March of 2011, the process theoretically started many years earlier. God placed the idea of adoption on our hearts over a decade ago when we were uncertain if we would have biological children. Fast forward 10 years, and we were blessed with two biological children, but the idea of adoption never left our mind.
We prayed for a shared vision as a couple for God’s direction for not only moving forward, but also with our agency choice, birth country, age, and gender. As we waited, we learned what is meant by the phrase, “our heart walking around on the other side of the world.” God is faithful. Our daughter arrived home in March of 2012. Her homecoming was not by any stretch the “end of the story”, as the process opened our eyes even more to the continued need to follow God’s imperative to care for the fatherless. Her addition to our family is a blessing SO BIG that words simply lack a just description.
