EXPLORING THE MIRACLE

Utah Valley University will be holding its 2009 Conference on Adoption on November 2, 2009
9am-3pm
Utah Valley University Sorenson Student Center
sponsored by Utah Adoption Council

Keynote Address by MICHAEL McLEAN
Michael McLean released his debut album, "You're Not Alone", in 1983, and with every song that followed, his lyrics have filled voids, encouraged love, and offered hope.

Perhaps his most requested song from Michael McLean is his beloved adoption song, "From God's Arms to My Arms to Yours". Anyone in the adoption process - birthmothers and their families as well as adoptive parents and their families - will treasure his heartfelt insights.
