Empowered to Connect Conference

New Life Adoptions is proud to partner with Show Hope in sharing the Empowered to Connect Conference Rewind.

The Empowered to Connect Conference is typically a two-day event presented by Show Hope and the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development. This year Show Hope is offering a Rewind of their 2018 and 2019 Empowered to Connect Conferences.

Experience practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.

The content shared at Empowered to Connect Rewind is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care, and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.
