Adopting from Foster Care 101

 

In recent weeks, the nation's heart was captured by Davion Only, a young man in Florida foster care who asked an entire congregation for a family. His actions have caused many to wonder if they should consider adopting one of the other 100,000 children who wait in our foster care system for a family. If you have ever considered adopting a child from foster care but weren't sure where to begin or how the process works, this webinar is for you. We will discuss the basic steps of adoption from foster care and important considerations along the way.

Presenter: Dr. Sharen Ford, Former President of the National Association of State Adoption Programs & Child Welfare Consultant
