I'm thrilled to be bringing my Adoption Basics to A Mother's Haven in Encino as part of their summer workshops and events series!
In previous Adoption Basics workshops, I gave prospective adoptive parents lots of helpful information about cost and wait times. I answered questions and addressed fears and concerns in a comfortable setting where no question was out of bounds. If you're considering adoption but feel overwhelmed by all the decisions or don’t know where to start, I hope you'll join us.
My only agenda is to provide the facts and figures about adoption, without any "hard sell" or manipulation. The process of adoption is steeped in mystery in our country. Orphans appear everywhere in our mythology, skewing our ideas about adoptees. I want people to have as clear eyes as possible about the process of adoption. Then they can make up their own mind about how and whether or not to pursue it.
I have no affiliation with any law firm or adoption agency, but I am an adoptive mother who has navigated this world. This is the workshop I wish had been available to my husband and me when we were starting out.
