General Discussion Meeting Special Topic: Birth Family Panel facilitated by Marni & Nikki
Join us for an insightful and inspiring general session with a birth family panel, featuring three individuals who with unique adoption experiences. The panel will consist of a birth father, a birth mother from a closed adoption, and a birth mother from an open adoption.
During the session, the panelists will share their personal stories of adoption, including their decision to place a child for adoption, the challenges they faced, and their experiences with the adoption process. They will also share their perspectives on how the adoption has impacted their lives, both positively and negatively.
Following their stories, we will open the floor to a Q&A session, where attendees will have the opportunity to ask the panelists any questions they may have about their experiences with adoption. This is an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of the birth family's perspective and learn how to better support birth families throughout the adoption process.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear from birth parents and gain a deeper understanding of the adoption experience. Join us for this informative and enlightening session.
