Our Sunday School Class called Faith Connectors always "adopts" a family at Christmas and helps make the children in the family have a merry Christmas. This year we decided to "adopt" a young girl who was a senior in high school from an unstable family situation who has goals of becoming a nurse. 

Well, our "adoption" has turned into a longer time period than just Christmas. Several in the class have been staying in touch with her weekly to make sure she gets started on her dream. They even attended her graduation last month. The class had a graduation brunch for her that morning and she was really appreciative.

This recipe for Fruit Swirl Coffee Cake was made by Friend Paula and was enjoyed at the brunch.


1-1/2       cups sugar
1/2          cup shortening
1/2          cup margarine
1              teaspoon vanilla
4             eggs
1/2          teaspoon baking powder
1              teaspoon almond extract
3             cups flour
