Attending adoption events are a great way to meet those in the adoption community and learn more about adoption as perspective adoptive parents. Adoption events vary widely based on location and the best way to find adoption events is through your adoption agency. They will most likely have educational events, support groups, and more depending on the size and scope of your agency. Here a just a few compiled by our Adoption Consultant Chloe Briggs. *If you know of or are part of an organization hosting an adoption related event, please leave your information in the comment section!
