We recently featured the National Council for Adoption as one of our favorite websites for information about adoptions. The 2012 National Adoption Conference is coming up very soon now: June 13-16, in National Harbor, MD, near Washington, DC.
One day of the conference is set aside for prospective adoptive parents.
Based on feedback from the 2011 conference, this year’s conference will be centered around how adoption service providers, adoptive parents, government officials, etc., can work together to get back to the Heart of the Matter - children who need families!
The professional sessions will be child-focused and client-centered. NCFA asks all participants to lay aside self-interests, collaborate, and do whatever it takes to fix what is wrong and fight for what is right. NCFA wants this conference to be one of excellence where we provide hope-filled strategies, prepare agencies and families for success, and celebrate adoption and its core values/roots.
Prospective Adoptive Parents Day sessions are guaranteed to boost your knowledge about the adoption process, adoption options, and resources available to you both pre- and post-adoption. You will have the opportunity to get your individual questions answered by adoption experts. You will hear personal stories from adopted individuals, birthparents, and adoptive parents. The 2012 National Adoption Conference
will be held from June 13–16. Professional sessions are Wednesday-Friday, June 13-15 and Prospective Adoptive Parents Day is Saturday, June 16. All sessions will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center just minutes outside of Washington, DC.
