Holiday cheer

Every year a group of Iowa women put together a pretty special gift for Iowa's waiting children. Formerly called Circle of Support and now known as Herizons, this group is a central Iowa support and mentoring initiative for women who were previously incarcerated and are now transitioning back into the community. 

For several years now, these women have donated handmade Christmas stockings, decorated with everything from carefully counted cross-stitch to fun fabric paints, for Iowa children waiting to be adopted. Each one is filled with small gifts for the boy or girl who will be receiving it.

Especially during the holidays, this is an amazing way to show children in foster care that people in their community care about them! Thanks to the women who created these special gifts! 

From all of us at Iowa KidsNet, we wish you a wonderful holiday season. We're grateful for all of Iowa's foster and adoptive families and our friends and partners who advocate on behalf of Iowa children. Thank you!
