Education Opportunities Continued


A continued list of adoption conferences for 2013! We will continue to update the list as more conferences approach.

MLJ’s Crossroads of America Adoption Conference will return to Indianapolis in 2014. Until then, here is a list of upcoming adoption conferences around the US. These conferences give adoption professionals and adoptive families a great opportunity to stay connected in an adoption network, as well as an opportunity to learn. Also, don’t forget that MLJ will continue to host Adoption Themed Weekends where many of our education classes will be held, along with fun country-themed parties!
