Albany
Ages: 
Adults

Have you been thinking of growing your family by adoption? It is so hard to know where to begin. This five-session online workshop will educate you about the main types of adoption --- foster-adopt, private domestic adoption and international adoption --- and how to compare them. Together we will candidly examine what the adoption process will require of you across the board, including emotionally, financially and in terms of time. Through psychoeducation, exploration of shared materials and some brief experiential exercises we will engage in a process of understanding and discernment. By the last session you should be clearer about whether adoptive parenting is a choice you are ready to make and if so, which kind of adoption is best for your family.10 hours * Mondays 5:30 pm-7:30 pm * January 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th and February 6, 2023 * We will meet online * $500 per familyhttps://www.taranoonesocialworker.com/is-adoption-right-for-us.html Tara Noone is a therapist with Grateful Heart Holistic Counseling Center.
