Our Next Monday Evening Speaker Series Presentation Features Activist Moses Farrow

Adoption Network Cleveland is a leader in bringing the adoption community together to create a support and advocacy network. As the need to keep us all safe continues, we are pleased to offer a second session of the popular Monday Evening Speaker Series full of interesting topics to a wide audience impacted by adoption, kinship, and foster care. Please join us for our next installment of this free virtual series.

Monday, January 25, 2021, at 8:00 pm ET -  The Link Between Adoption Trauma and Generational Trauma - Why we all need to come out of the fog

Our next Monday Evening Speaker Series presentation will feature Adoption Trauma Specialist Moses Farrow who stresses that as the country becomes more trauma-informed, the timing is perfect for building awareness about adoption trauma. It’s of paramount importance that we no longer exclude the relinquishment that allows the adoption to occur. We must also examine how we are all affected by generational trauma and how it persists. Traci Onders interviews Moses Farrow in this special Speaker Series event about his personal and professional experiences with adoption trauma and how he links it with generational trauma.




Together we build community and help create a brighter future.

    “Connecting with her birth family, exploring and engaging with other adoptees in the community, and the relationship my wife has with Adoption Network personally have given her more than I can even express and gave us the foundation to continue onward with our own little family.”
