Adoptive, Foster, and Prospective Adoptive and Foster Parents can find support and adoption education at AKA.
Meeting with other adoptive parents as well as adoptees and birth/first family can be a powerful and rewarding experience. Adoptive, foster, and prospective adoptive and foster families benefit from this unique aspect of AKA, learning and understanding about adoption through the eyes of the adoptee. Our Adoptive Parent Meetups are once a month, the third Monday of the month. See event page for more information. Our Annual conference is also a great resource. Visit the conference menu tab for dates and information.
All members of AKA benefit from our lending library and access to audio recordings of the educational meetings.

AKA Adoptive & Foster Parents Say:
“AKA has been a sense of familiarity and belonging in the new world of adoption to us. We are so thankful for that sense of belonging and support as we’ve become adoptive parents.”
– Jenny Leman, Adoptive Mom
“AKA has been a source of expert advice from those who have been there. It’s led to long-term friendships. It’s a place where I can always find understanding. It’s given me a place to serve where I think I can make a difference. My daughter sees it’s ok for adoption to be out in the open, without shame.”
– adoptive mom
