Openness is no longer just a trend in domestic adoption, it is the norm. Over 90% of the domestic infant adoptions our agency facilitates involve some level of ongoing direct contact between the birth and adoptive families following an adoption. Join us to hear directly from those who live this experience every day through their open adoption relationships. This webinar will include a panel of adoptive parents, a birthmother, an adult adoptee, and an adoption social worker to discuss the realities of openness in adoption. We will explore the benefits and real-life experiences of openness in adoption, as well as how to support openness when direct contact isn’t possible.
This webinar will be useful for domestic adoptive parents, adoptees, birth parents and professionals. CEUs and Certificates of Attendance will be provided to attendees. This webinar will be recorded and the recording link will be sent out to those who register but cannot attend live.Register Now
