Thinking Of Adoption & Live Near Memphis?

Recommended Posts

Christ United Methodist Church, located at 4488 Poplar Avenue, is hosting the “Hearts For Adoption” series each Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. through November 20th. It is a FREE series and the public is invited to come to any and all nights of interest. Although I am not a member of this particular church, I've spoken there before. Nice folks & won't try to guilt you into coming back...very welcoming environment.

Leslie & I will be sharing our story on Wednesday the 16th...the journey, the process, and probably a few words about an agency we're kind of partial to. ;)

Among the featured speakers throughout the series are an adoption attorney and a licensed clinical social worker. Discussions will also cover domestic & international adoptions.

Here's the link to more info: http://www.cumcmemphis.org/adoption

We've also got details and a flyer on our website as well.

Events like these help answer some general questions to help you make some informed decisions, but it is by no means a substitute for what you'll learn at Orientation Weekend.

Kevin and I took a similar class in January 2011. It was a great way to meet other people in the Houston area and also, hear from professionals about adoption.

I hope that this class is a success for all the people who attend.

Tim,

This is wonderful that you will be sharing your story. I believe at events like these it is always important for someone who truly knows the importance of open adoption to speak. I hope it goes well, and that you can help at least one family understand the importance of what we do at Abrazo.

Thanks! Glad to get in front of an audience willing to listen to our story.

I know orientation jusssst ended, but has a date been confirmed or considered (that I can tell the audience about) for when the next orientation weekend might be held? If not, no biggie. I can just tell them they should start on paperwork right away, so they could be sitting in San Antonio soon after the first of the year.

I love the thought of a bigger Memphis crowd. We've been so blessed recently with families who attend gatherings and get the kids together and I'd love to see that circle grow even bigger!!
