Family Forums are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, and are intended to be a time of education, constructive dialogue, and support. Occasionally, topics of particular interest may also be discussed during a lunch hour forum.
A lot of families who want to adopt go into the process thinking that they don’t have preconceived notions or expectations of what their adopted child will be like. But we all have expectations! This forum will help you understand some of the most common expectations you may hold, and the issues that can arise from holding onto them too tightly.
All Recommended families will receive an email inviting them to register for upcoming Forums. If you are Recommended and have not received an email invitation, please contact us at iap@fireflyIN.org. If you are not Recommended with Indiana Adoption Program, but have recently adopted or are in the process of finalizing an adoption and would like to participate, please email your request to your local adoption consultant.
