Networking your Adoption Journey!

You've probably read online about adoption profiles or books, but may be wondering how you are going to stand out so a prospective birthparent may decide you are the ones to adopt her child.  You may have heard that profiles should give a glimpse of what it would be like for a child to grow up in your home, but don't know where to begin. This training will help you take control of your adoption process by ensuring your profile is visible to prospective birthparents, rather than sitting back and waiting for your adoption entity to find her. This is a great way to empower yourself on this journey to becoming a family!


This workshop will address the benefits of networking your adoption journey, platforms/options available, and ways to build your adoption community. Financing your adoption, crowdfunding, grants, the adoption tax credit, and other resources will also be covered. Training includes discounted package options with our recommended graphic web/designers who specialize in creating adoption profiles.
