Education and Discussion Groups
Monday, October 15th, 7:00 p.m.
Open Adoption Panel Discussion: A panel of adoptive parents representing the various paths to adoptions (private adoption, international adoption and adoption of children from foster care) will share their stories about openness in adoption. Adoptive parents will be asked to address if their feelings about openness have changed over time, how openness works in their families, what the barriers and challenges to openness have been and what the greatest benefits of openness are for their family.
