Take a look at our exciting breakout sessions for 2017!

Adoption Basics

Speakers: Carrie and Shea Overman

Are you so new to this process you are not even sure what you don’t know? Does adoption terminology sound like a foreign language to you? Do you need the basics to help you feel like you can even start exploring the various processes? In this session, you’ll receive a brief overview of all the adoption options and basic questions to ask yourself as you explore what adoption would look like for your family.
