Blue Lemon owners Aaron and Lychelle Day, who are adoptive parents themselves, will donate $1 to the non-profit for every breakfast entrée item bought next week, June 17 – 22.
“We picked the Utah Adoption Exchange as a recipient of our charity breakfast event because we are personally very passionate about the need to find loving and supportive families for all children,” said Lychelle Day, co-owner of Blue Lemon.
In addition to being the mother of three daughters, Day and her husband have adopted two brothers, aged three and four. The Utah Adoption Exchange recruits families to adopt children ages eight to 18 years old. According to Lindsay Kaeding of the Utah Adoption Exchange, 154 children are waiting to be adopted in Utah. The average child is an 11-year-old boy, and many children are victims of abuse and neglect. The Utah Adoption Exchange is the only adoption recruitment agency registered with the state of Utah. The organization contracts with the Utah Division Child and Family Services to match children who need a home with suitable parents.
