We know adoptive families, birth families, and adopted adults continue to need support and education even after their adoption is finalized. New Life hosts a variety of post adoption seminars to provide ongoing support and help connect you with others who may be in similar stages.

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.
