Spring Has Sprung for AOI

Hello from your friends at Adoptions of Indiana! A big focus for our agency this year is Growing Community. We’re using social media and in-person meet ups to strengthen our adoption community!

We are excited to announce a couple of events on our calendar – we hope you’ll join us!


For Birth Mothers

April 7th – Birth Moms Budgeting and Financial Planning Seminar

Sarah Boston is a financial adviser and branch manager for Raymond James.  Sarah, also a birth mother, describes her approach, “My budgeting workshops are not all about “what you should be doing” or designed to make you feel guilty about what you have been doing. It is about finding the methodology that works for your money personality, helping understand what information you need to make good financial decisions, and most of all…wipe that guilt away!” Sarah Boston is a financial adviser and branch manager for Raymond James.  Sarah, also a birth mother, describes her approach, “My budgeting workshops are not all about “what you should be doing” or designed to make you feel guilty about what you have been doing.

For Adoptive Parents

April 21th – Adoptive Family Spring Meet-Up!

We will meet at the Urban Chalkboard, a play and learning place for babies and littles in Carmel near our office. We do need to have an idea of how many children will be attending, so please RSVP to Becky at becky@adoptionsofindiana.org! If we have more than 10 children, we may need to reserve the space and push the time back from 2-4pm that day. We hope many of you can make it!

On-Going Education

Many have told us that the pre-adoptive educational workshops attended at AOI have been extremely helpful, we’re glad! We want to make you aware of the on-going educational opportunities available through AOI. Please visit our website here: adoptionsofindiana.org/post-adoption-education-seminars/ for more information. If one, or more of these courses would be helpful to you on you adoption journey contact Addison at addison@adoptionsofindiana.org
