We want all of our families to be fully prepared for the joys and the challenges that adopting a child will bring into their lives. We work with each family to come up with a parent education and training program that meets their situation and needs. All first-time adoptive parents complete a minimum of 12 hours of Adoptive Parent Education and Training, although some states and programs will require more. This is done through a combination of in-person and online training. We also can provide referrals to organizations that provide specialized training and education for adoptive families. This gives our families the opportunity to think about a wide range of issues and get their questions answered. It also gives them the chance to ready themselves for what lies ahead.
Considering adoption but not sure where to start? We've got you covered. Adoption 101 are meetings available at the main office once a month. You can also contact us to set up a one-on-one information meeting. We will go through the process step-by-step from the beginning to the end. We also cover emotional considerations, family changes, costs, process, and so much more. We will provide you with knowledge and resources so you will go home feeling confident and ready to start your adoption process.
