Adoption Alternatives Network

The Adoption Alternatives Network was created to make a personable network of LDS Families that will help children find the right match for their permanent home. It will help to assist adoptive families to prepare for and find children who will thrive in their home.

The Adoption Alternative Network is starting their monthly classes next Thursday, January 22nd. The following is more information about the network and their class schedule. This is a great way to add to your adoption options!

We believe that all home study qualified families can adopt. These meetings are established to help waiting couples to learn about adoption alternatives and to network with other's who have had successful adoption experiences. Even though the adoption alternatives topics listed below repeat, every meeting will be unique and will feature different guest speakers and different success stories about adoption to enhance networking and our understanding and knowledge about adoption alternatives.
Meetings will be held at the North Farmington LDS Stake Center, 729 West Shepard Lane, Farmington at 7:00pm. We have reserved the Relief Society room for our meetings.
All interested families adopting or considering adoption are welcome to attend. Meetings will be held every other month on the fourth Thursday of the month with the exceptions of July and November (see below)

March 26 Working with other Child-placing Agencies & Attorneys
May 28 International Adoption Options
July 23 Summer Vacations/Holidays---No Meetings
