Foster & Adoptive Parent Training

Presented by the MARE Adoption Navigators

Healing the Wounds of Foster and Adoptive Parents with trainer Cole Williams. 

This workshop will focus on "Unconditional Love- Raising Children with Emotional, Behavioral, and Traumatic Backgrounds" along with "The Importance of Recognizing Compassion Fatigue" and the need for "Self-Care". 

Cole Williams is the CEO and Founder of “Son To A Father” and “Cole Speaks”, which are programs that work to empower and restore relationships between teens and their parents. Cole has developed curricula and workshops that explore the emotional terrain of parenting.

Cole's  journey from growing up fatherless, to becoming a single teenage father, to reuniting with his biological father, to finally fostering and adopting fatherless son's are the lessons he uses to illustrate the colors of parenting in the 21st Century. Cole is a Motivational Speaker, Fatherhood Consultant, Facilitator, and most importantly a Father.
