International adoptionJoin us in our offices downtown Indianapolis to learn about international adoption and meet staff members of MLJ Adoptions. MLJ Adoptions CEO and Adoption Attorney, Michele Jackson, will present an Initial Information Seminar for all families considering adding to their families through international adoption on Friday, September 12 from 3:00 – 5:00. Michele, an adoptive mom herself through international adoption, will address the following topics during her presentation:

  • Who can adopt internationally?
  • Who are the children in need of families?
  • How long does an international adoption take?
  • What are the risks of international adoption?

We invite all interested families to attend this free information session and learn about our international adoption programs in Bulgaria, Haiti, Mexico, Nicaragua, Samoa and Ukraine. We’ll help you identify which program is right for you and layout the steps to start an international adoption.

Before the initial information session, our Financial Resources Coordinator, Camie Schuiteman, will present Affording Adoption from 1:00 – 3:00. Camie has inspired adoptive parents from around the nation by telling her story of raising over $50,000 for the international adoption of her two daughters from Vietnam. She will share her tips for grant writing, fundraising and money saving ideas to raise the funds for an international adoption.

We also invite all prospective adoptive families to attend our Annual Adoption Celebration Picnic on Saturday, September 13 from noon to two at Forest Park in Noblesville, IN, Shelter #5. This event provides an excellent opportunity for prospective adoptive families to meet other adoptive families.

You may register for all three events here. Please contact us if you have any questions.
