Making this holiday season spirits bright...Adopt-A-Manateeฎ love receiving their manatee information packets at Christnlas and immediately put their manatee's picture up in their rooms. Our son likes to take his adoption packet to school for show-and-tell. What's really great is that you get to follow your manatee for a whole year. We can't wait for each newsletter to see if our manatees have been spotted!" There are 32 manatees to choose from in the Club's three Florida adoption programs. Nick's choices were from the Blue Spring State Park program. "I chose Nick because he shared my name, and I chose Flash another year because I think he's fast!" said Nick. His sister, Andrea, made both her adoption selections from the Club's adoption program at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, "I chose Rosie and Lorelei because I thought their names were pretty." In the spring of 2008, the Lulich family visited Homo- sassa, and Andrea was thrilled to be able to see her adopted manatee, Rosie. "It was an amazing experience to actually see the manatee whom we'd read so much about," said Tara. "We can't imagine how anyone who spends a second in their presence can't help but fall in love with them!"

"I've known about manatees since i was a teenager visiting Florida, and they've always held a specia!91ace in my heart," said Tara. ".Ior the past three Christma~s,, we have adopted manatees ~r.our children, Nick, 8 and Aiidr~a, 11.
