Upcoming Education Seminars
Family Services Adoption Agency offers an informative and exciting 4-‐day educational program designed to help you learn about all aspects of adoption. You will:
- Make connections with others involved in the adoption process;
- Learn about the latest information to make your adoption successful;
- Get tips and techniques on becoming the best adoptive parent(s) you can possibly be.
What our graduates are saying, “Despite the fact that this program is mandatory, we were glad to have learned about attachment, grief and loss, orphanage life, special needs etc. before our adopted child came home!”
Please join us for the opportunity to connect with other families and learn about this lifelong journey! Pre-‐registration is required and completion of the program is necessary before the home study is approved.
