Reduce your wait
Adoption Connection has a philosophy that hopefully will help you have a shorter time until your placement.
Instead of asking you, as prospective adoptive parents, to just WAIT with us, we are inviting you to WORK with us. This training was developed by an adoptive father after he and his wife used these specific techniques to adopt their two children. It is offered through Adoption Connection's Supportive Services.
For information, contact Angie at (513) 489-1616.
