POST ADOPTION SERVICES THAT GROW UP WITH YOUR FAMILY
When should you start post adoption services?  Before adoption!  This workshop will discuss the post adoption services available for the entire adoptive family, throughout the lifetime of the family.  We will review the types of post adoption services and levels of care available, depending on the child and family's needs, age at placement, and pre-placement experiences.  From play groups to support groups, there is always a way to stay connected to the adoption community.   This interactive workshop will support all families, at any stage of adoption, to make a long term plan for their family's post adoption needs and identify services that can grow up with your family
   
 Refreshments will be served and all are welcome!
