Making the Decision to Adopt

This workshop is for you if you are considering adoption and if you find you are getting stuck in your attempts to start the adoption process.
Speaker and Moderator, Joni S. Mantell, LCSW

You will learn why making the emotional decision to adopt is so difficult and how to get yourself unstuck in your family building journey. How to take the first steps toward adoption will be addressed as well.

Two adoptive parents will present how they were able to make this transition and how they adopted through domestic and international adoption.

Joni S. Mantell, LCSW is a psychotherapist with a specialty in adoption since 1993. She works with all members of the adoption triad, and this helps her to understand adoption from the perspective of both the child and the parent.
