Adoption 101 Orientation

March-Easter 2015 049Thinking about adopting? Learn the basics with Adoption 101, then move on to our advanced parenting/adoption classes as part of your adoption journey.

Caring Adoptions’ adoption orientations are presented free of charge to prospective Adoptive Parents.

The Adoption 101 orientation is a great class where you get to learn all about adoption and decide if it is a right fit for you and your family. At this class we explore the process as a whole, what it takes to adopt and what Caring Adoptions has to offer. It will give you insight into the requirements, home study process, the financial aspects, how we match birthparents to families, and the legalities of adoption. We also discuss what happens after placement and answer any questions you have about the adoption journey. A past adoptive family also comes to share their adoption story and answer any questions.

Attendance at these sessions is limited so that you have the opportunity to ask questions, hear questions from others attending that you possibly did not think of, and meet some of our staff.

The orientations are usually offered the first Tuesday of each month and are held in our offices. They are held from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Reservations are requested and may be made by contacting us. If you are unable to attend one of our group orientation sessions we also offer private adoption 101 orientation sessions by appointment with our Family Coordinator, Valerie Ortega.
