One of our altos Sadie and David her husband are running in the Edinburgh half marathon in aid of Scottish Adoption, and she’s asked that the following is published here.
Adopting Emily was a profoundly emotional, scary and fantastic experience for us, and after nearly seven years neither I, David or Alex (Emily’s big sister) can imagine life without her as part of our family. Scottish Adoption are the reason we have such a wonderful, bonkers, delightful youngest daughter. Running the half marathon is a very small gesture of thanks to an organisation that literally transformed our lives.
We’ve got a donation web page (https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/davidhopkinson1) which people can donate through. Alternatively, we can accept donations ‘offline’.
We run the day after the RCSM Celebration Day service in Edinburgh which happens on Saturday 25th May, so apologies if I’m a bit distracted with the singing thing 🙂
