Adoption 101: Where Do I Begin? Workshop

Considering becoming a parent or expanding a family through adoption can be both exciting and overwhelming. There is so much information available about adoption that people often ask, “Where do I begin?” In celebration of our 35th Anniversary, the December workshop will be free for all attendees.

Adoption 101 is a workshop intended for people looking into adoption for the first time.

Program covers:
Types of Adoption
Adoption Providers
Three Roads to Adoption

  • Public, Waiting Child Adoption
  • Private, Domestic Infant Adoption
  • International Adoption

Financial Considerations
Adoptive Parent Panel
Adoption is a Lifelong Journey
Questions and Answers

The workshop is designed to help prospective adoptive parents prepare, build confidence, and make a decision about the best route for their adoption journey.

Adoption Network Cleveland is a neutral source of information, as we are not an adoption agency facilitating any adoptions.
