Community Will Answer Questions at Adoption Information Session


196339_1794670720656_1656337289_1769449_4931968_nWhen I want advice on cooking, clothing or cars, I usually know who to reach out to. For cooking questions, I call my mom. For clothing questions, I call a friend. For car questions, I call my dad.

I am thankful to be in a network of people who can answer most of my questions. Their expertise is varied, but between my family and friends, I know people with knowledge in a range of fields. Community is powerful in that way.

As an international adoption agency, MLJ Adoptions is thankful to be part of the adoption community comprised of adoption professionals, adoptees and brave adoptive families. Relationships within the adoption community are crucial to both prospective adoptive families and families once their child joins their families. This community creates a safe place where questions about the process, attachment, behavior issues and creating an identity can be asked and answered.

Because we value community, we strive to give prospective adoptive families the opportunity to interact with families who have adopted. This gives prospective adoptive families a fuller picture of international adoption than what an adoption professional can share. At our upcoming Latin America Initial Information Session on July 18th, families will not only have the opportunity to meet members of our MLJ Adoptions Team, but they will be able to meet MLJ Adoptions’ families who have previously adopted from Latin America. There will be a time of questions and receiving answers to those questions. Families who have completed the adoption process will be able to share about their experiences during the Initial Information Session. They provide excellent insight to the process, and the feelings many adoptive parents experience throughout it.

We hope this interaction will be valuable for families curious about the adoption journey of others. MLJ Adoptions strongly encourages prospective adoptive families to speak with families who have already adopted. If you are unable to attend July 18th’s event, we are able to provide you with contact information for MLJ Adoptions’ Reference Families, not just for our Latin American Country Programs, but for all nine of our country programs as well.

RSVP to our Initial Information Session on July 18th here. You may also contact us for more information on our session or on our international adoption programs.
