Pre-adoption workshops are provided several times each year to families completing their adoptive home study. These workshops offer families an inside look into the world of an adoptive family.
Patricia Irwin Johnston, one of our nation’s foremost respected adoption educators, authors, and the retired publisher of Perspectives Press educates our families on how to prepare themselves to become adoptive parents. Tara Vanderwoude, a nationally respected adoption educator prepares our prospective adoptive parents to better understand issues related to transracial adoption. Our professional staff provides workshops on understanding birth parents, the adoption process, transracial adoption and multiculturalism, and understanding adoptive issues throughout your child’s development.
Birth parents, adoptive parents, and adult adoptees volunteer their time to educate our families about adoption. These pre-adoption workshops are a requirement of the adoptive home study and are offered several times throughout the year.
In addition to pre-adoption workshops ADOPTIONS OF INDIANA provides a myriad of post-adoption seminars and workshops to meet the needs of adoptive families. They are directed toward adoptive parents, school age children, tweens, teens, and adult adoptees.
Please refer to the Sessions and Workshop to learn more about seminars and workshops.
