For Minnesota Families Interested in Infant Adoption

After completing Application Part 1, this is the next step for all families planning to pursue an infant adoption through CH/LSS.

These classes will familiarize you with the legal adoption process in Minnesota, the importance of openness in adoption, and strategies available to you to engage in your own adoption outreach efforts. You will also have the opportunity to listen to a panel of adoptive and birth parents share their adoption experiences.

Topics covered include: program process and options, an overview of the steps and time frames involved in completing a legal adoption, considerations for adoptive parenting, understanding the birth parent experience, cross-cultural and transracial parenting, supporting openness in adoption, and utilizing your personal network, social media, and other avenues available to you to engage in adoption outreach.

To fulfill the education requirement, families must attend both days in the series. Classes take place on Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Friday from 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Location: This class will take place in person at our Main Office – 1605 Eustis St. Saint Paul, MN 55108.

Cost: The cost for pre-adoption training is $250 per person or $500 per couple. This Education Fee will be invoiced immediately following your completion of the Infant Adoption 2-Day Training course.
