Spence-Chapin’s Adoption Resource Center provides the building blocks, education, and support that adoptive families may need at different life stages. On Saturday April 28th we will be hosting a mini-conference day at the Yonkers Public Library in Westchester, NY. Adoptive families and those considering adoption, will have the opportunity to participate in workshops with a trained social worker. Our workshop topics will be:
- Building Resilience in our Children – one of the best gifts we can give.
- Different kids, Different Stories – helping your children cope with life’s disparities and discussing these differences in a positive way.
- Adult Adoptees Share Their Stories – sharing their unique insights into the ways that adoption has impacted their lives.
We will also host an Information Meeting where those who are considering adoption can learn more about the options in International and Domestic adoption, what the current climate of adoption is, and how to make an informed decision about the type of child you could welcome into your family.
