This Sunday from 1-4 pm, we will be at the Adoption Fair (at St. Francis High School). February 1 & 8 at 7pm, we will be hosting adoption workshops, Parents in Process, for all prospective adoptive parents. In light of our upcoming events, our Executive Director, Judy Freundlich Tiell has given us a few words:
Adoption is a wonderful option to grow a family. At JFCS we have helped families to adopt children from here in the US to all over the world. People have adopted from China, Guatemala, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Korea, Romania, Mexico, Philippines, Thailand, India, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Peru – the list goes on and on. It is a wonderful experience to add different cultural events and histories to your family and to truly become a multicultural, diverse family.
Adoption is a lifelong process and there are challenges along the way – from the process of application, through raising an adopted child. But what a wonderful opportunity to provide a loving, safe home for a child and making the world a little more diverse.
If you’re thinking about adopting, please come out to the Adoption Fair this weekend, or give us a call to register for Parents in Process – 452-6341.
