Friday, June 12- 6:30-8:30 pm on Zoom
We know how difficult it is to be apart, but we have been praying for all of you in spirit. Please plan to attend our Zoom Support Group Meeting on Friday, June 12 at our regular time of 6:30-8:30.  We will focus on Making the Decision to Adopt. 
 
Training led by: Evangel Wicks, DFCS Adoption Program Consultant

 After working hard to reunify children with their birth family, Partnership Parents often find themselves facing the decision about adoption. How do you know when and how to “say yes” or to “say no” and what are the best steps to take after the decision is made? This workshop will help you honestly evaluate if your family is the right fit for a child becoming legally free in your home. This presentation will also help you with techniques on how to prepare your own family and the child for the transition to adoption in your family or with a new family.


You will receive two hours of training credit for your attendance and participation.

Registration is required for your Training Certificate.
Certificates will be emailed to participates who attended the entire training.
