BILLINGS - A Billings business is using its presence at a trade show this weekend to talk about the rewards of adopting a child.
McCall Leisure brought out its patio furniture to 30th annual Home Improvement Show at MetraPark, ad will also raise awareness about adoption and money for Wendy's of Montana and Wendy's Wonderful Kids program.
Bill Dow has been building a sand castle and teaching kids how to build their own works of art at the show.
Wendy's, Lutheran Social Services of Montana and Catholic Social Services are talking to those families about adoption.
"You know everybody says that's a great thing you're doing for those kids,"Michael McGullam, owner of McCall Leisure. "But they just don't really understand how much of a blessing it is on both sides. We just love to share our story with others and hear about the great ways their families have been touched by adoption as well.."
"How they grow and how the family grows," said Diana Tolstedt, recruiter for the Wendy's Wonderful Kids. "And they're at home, they're finally at home. I think that's one of the greatest aspects, a family. You know you can't replace family."
McCall Leisure and nearly 700 companies will be at the Home Improvement Show this weekend.
