Utah Symphony/Utah Opera

    Offer their annual concert for children with special needs and their families. They present this concert because they know many families cannot attend cultural events together because some special needs children may have difficulty keeping quiet in their seats. They feature the Utah Opera Resident Artists with the Utah Symphony on the Abravanel Hall stage for this special concert.

Cradle of Hope Adoption Center, a nonprofit adoption agency with 28 years of experience, is seeking adoptive homes for Chinese orphans with Down syndrome.  Eligible families can be married couples or single women, ages 30 – 55, and must meet China’s eligibility criteria.
We are waiving our entire placement fee for families adopting children with Down Syndrome from China.  Adopting families will still face expenses for homestudy, US immigration approval, travel expenses to China for one two-week trip, etc.
If you can open your home and your heart to a Chinese orphan with DS, please contact us for more information.
