Search Travel - Where to Start

Lotus Travel

Sep 20, 2019 Oklahoma
Show event description and sign up to attend

Adoptive parents had always been told it would be impossible.  Turns out, more adoptees are locating birth family members - someimes on their initiative, other times with help of adoptive parents, hired "searchers" or, on rare occasion by happenstance. While we have helped plan parts of search travel for years, now we are offering the first ever webinar/workshop that explores some consistent avenues for exploring family "roots".   This is not a "how to" do search in order to acheive good outcomes, it is a collection of information compiled  from years of travel search assistance, observation, and anecdotal summaries.  This session provides insights into likely avenues, useful tidbits and cultural insights that can increase the likelihood  for good outcomes, while minimizing time wasters.

PRIDE Training

The Barker Adoption Foundation

Sep 28, 2019 Maryland
Adoption Support, Education, Getting Started in Adoption
Show event description and sign up to attend

PRIDE (Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education) is a nationally recognized training model used for families who are interested in adopting an older child from the foster care system. The Barker Adoption Foundation is holding classes at the Bethesda, MD office over a period of four Saturday's from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  Our first session starts September 28. Families have the opportunity to learn about adoption from the foster care system and to better understand the needs of children who are being placed through  our older child adoption program - Project Wait No Longer (PWNL). Training is a requirement for all families pursuing adoption through the foster care system, but it is also a learning experience so you can have a better understanding of what your new child has been through and how to best meet their needs. 

Many families use the training experience to confirm their commitment to adopting a child with a history of trauma. It also provides the opportunity to build relationships with other families who are adopting from the foster care system and to build relationships with PWNLstaff. Two highlights from the training include hearing from a family who has adopted through PWNL and a presentation from PWNL's Placement Coordinator on the matching process.

Hosting a Child
Show event description and sign up to attend

In this program, aside from exploring the beautiful and welcoming country of Colombia, individuals and families will have the unique opportunity to play an integral role in finding permanent homes for vulnerable children by visiting them and spending a week together.  Each liaison will have a designated child (or children) deemed a good fit, to accompany them throughout the tours and activities of the In-Country Hosting Program.  During this time, the liaisons will be gathering information about the child; by the end of the week, the liaison will have a unique perspective about the child’s personality, social ability, peer relationships, physical abilities, medical needs, etc.  As a liaison, you will keep a daily journal of observations about the child.  As an advocate for that child, you will be their best representative to a potential adoptive family!  And do not be surprised if YOU are that family!
