Adoption Readiness Part 1: Getting Started

NEW AND IMPROVED!  Adoption Readiness Series

We have renewed and improved our Adoption Readiness workshop to be more helpful and relevant to our families. At Adoption Mosaic, we believe that successful adoptive parenting comes from being prepared and having the knowledge to make informed decisions. Our new Adoption Readiness series provides unbiased, straight- forward information in a safe confidential environment, providing parents with a sound foundation for building their adoptive families.

Part 1: Getting Started

Topics covered in Part 1 include, but are not limited to:

  • Finances
  • Children with special needs
  • International adoption
  • Open adoption
  • Including and handling extended family in your adoption
  • Surviving the wait
  • Prenatal substance exposure

Date: November 23, 2013, February 8, 2014 or May 17, 2014
Time:  9am – 1 pm
Location:  SE UpLift Building, 3534 SE Main Street, Portland, OR

What sets us apart?

We know you can take similar courses elsewhere, but here are a few reasons you should consider the Adoption Readiness series at Adoption Mosaic:

  • We create a safe space to express doubts,worries and challenging questions
  • We are NOT an adoption placement agency—no pressure to adopt
  • We offer unbiased information to help you make sound adoption choices
  • We help you understand the variety of adoption options
  • We provide resources before, during, and well after the adoption process
  • We serve all members of the adoption constellation
