Adoptive Family Seminars

Home / Adoptive Family Seminars

We know families continue to need support and education even after your adoption is finalized. New Life hosts a variety of adoptive family seminars to provide ongoing support and help connect you with other families who may be in similar stages.

Post Adoption Seminar

Every year New Life Adoptions provides a Post Adoption Seminar highlighting a common topic in adoption. This seminar is open to all past New Life adoptive families as well as families currently working with New Life.

September 15, 2020 7:00pm-9:00pm

Adoptive Triad Panel
This seminar features a panel of all members of the adoption relationship: the adoptee, adoptive parents, and birth parents. You will hear the birth parent(s) share about their journey in making an adoption plan, the adoptive parent’s story about what led them to pursue adoption, and the adoptee’s experience in this unique relationship.

Date TBD – To view a video of our last Adoptive Triad Panel contact our Post Adoption Social Worker at the information below.

Adoptee Panel
This seminar is focused on adoption from the adopted child’s perspective. This panel features adopted children of various ages who will share their experience and adoption story. The panel will speak about their experience growing up, their level of openness with their birth family, and offer insightful advice on how to support your adopted children.

Date TBD

Navigating Relationships
Families of adoption often have unique relationships that other families may not experience. There can be a lot to navigate within these unique relationships and you may not always feel fully equipped to handle them. Whether it is a relationship with a birth family, a relationship between and adopted child and a biological child, or navigating transracial relationships within your family, it may feel like you are alone in your experience. Come hear a panel of adoptive families talk about their experience navigating the many relationships within adoption.
