Two great conferences are coming up for adoption, foster and orphan care advocates in the northeast and in the Texas region. We’ve already highlighted them in our newsletters, but as the dates approach, it is not yet too late to register.
These regional conferences are a tremendous way for adoptive families and other advocates for orphans both to build expertise/knowledge and to connect you with others in your region who share your passion for orphans.
