Once my children had grown, my husband Tom and I got an apartment in NYC and I began to rediscover my love of singing and performing. I started studying voice and performing in cabaret shows and through that world, I met a young couple and discovered that they were riding the infertility roller coaster. They told me about an organization called HelpUsAdopt, which awards financial grants to assist with the high costs of adoption. It had already been suggested to me that I create and host a series called Robin’s Nest. After meeting with the Founder and Executive Director of HelpUsAdopt, I decided that I would create Robin’s Nest to support HelpUsAdopt.
And the rest, as they say, is history . . .
My voice teacher and director, Eric Michael Gillett helped me create Robin's Nest a tri-annual cabaret style benefit series to support HelpUsAdopt.org. I host each Robin's Nest event which features a variety of guests and offers a combination of song and adoption related human interest stories as well as table-side interviews, Many of the guests and performers are adoptees or adoptive parents and others have a strong personal connection to adoption via friends and relatives.
Now in its fourth year, Robin’s Nest has met with great success and continues to spread the word raise support and HelpUsAdopt.
HelpUsAdopt is a national non-profit 501c3 financial grant program providing qualified couples and individuals - regardless of race, ethnicity, marital status, religion, sexual orientation or disability - grants up to $15,000 toward their domestic, international, foster or special needs adoption expenses.
