Adoption Alternatives

We warmly invite you to attend our Adoption Alternatives meeting scheduled for Thursday September 24. We have created a personable network of LDS Families that assist adopting families to prepare for and find children who will thrive in their home.

Ryan and Myrna Brophy worked with LDS Family Services toward adoption. When LDSFS received a call from a partner agency about a special new born child, Ryan and Myrna were informed and chose to pursue the adoption. Based on the circumstances of the child, LDSFS, Ryan and Myrna coordinated with the State to insure all possible support services were made available.

Ryan and Myrna have agreed to attend our meeting and to share their adoption story. They can help answer questions about their experience working with LDSFS and the State.

We will also have Brenda Durtschi from the Utah Foster Care Foundation present to provide information and answer questions.

We invite you to come, learn, and network with others. Our meeting will begin at 7:00 PM on September 24.

Meetings are held at the Farmington North Stake Center, 729 West Shepard Lane, Farmington, in the Relief Society Room.

What Do You Want To See?

Hello fellow FSA members! At our last board meeting we discussed this blog and how to use it most effectively. We came to the conclusion that in addition to using it to get information to you about upcoming events and activities, we would also like to use it for other purposes that meet your needs. Some ideas that we had were using the blog to post some or all of the following:
  • Articles about adoption/infertility
  • Adoption alternative information
  • Ideas for birth parent gifts
  • Answers to frequently asked questions
  • Advice for couples starting the adoption process
  • "Finding" ideas
  • Etc.....

So here is where we need your help. What things would you like to see on the blog??? We want your input and feedback! So please leave a comment with your ideas, or you can email us directly at Thanks!!!
