Adoption Preparation Classes

These classes are required to anyone working with us and are beneficial to anyone interested in or seriously pursuing adoption, whether through Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County, another agency, an attorney or internationally. Please think about joining us!

In a fun, non-threatening environment, our series of four classes attempts to prepare families for parenting through adoption by “walking in the shoes” of all members of the adoption circle. In addition to the didactic presentations, each session features a panel of adoptive parents, birth families and/or adoptees who will share their experiences with adoption.

Session One: Adoption Knowledge
Session Two: Walking with Adoptive Parents
Session Three: Walking with Adoptees and Birth Parents
Session Four: Walking with the Whole Family, Parenting Tips, Birth Parent Letters/Albums
