Register for a Virtual Meet & Greet!

Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) would like to invite you to register for our Virtual Meet & Greet!  We hope to continue to connect youth and families on a virtual platform even as we move back to some in-person meet and greets!   

  • Saturday, December 11, 2021
  • 11 AM - 12:30 PM (families plan to sign on at 10:45 AM for a brief orientation)
  • Virtually via zoom (link will be sent out in a confirmation email)

Waiting youth:  Priority will be given to youth without any pending inquiries through MARE, youth who have never been to a meet and greet and youth who were not in attendance at a recent MARE Meet and Greet. If a child participated in a recent meet and greet, all inquiries from the last event should be resolved before the child can attend the next event. Once a child has been registered, a confirmation email will be sent to their adoption worker with the zoom information for the event. All attending youth MUST be legally free for adoption, photo listed with MARE and listed as "Open" on the MARE website.

Please note when registering waiting youth: Adoption workers, if you register a youth for a meet and greet and you anticipate they will have a status change prior to the event date, please notify me so that we can discuss if it would be appropriate for that youth to still attend the event. 

Adoptive families:  Families will receive a confirmation email after MARE has spoken with their adoption worker to verify they have a completed adoption homestudy with the zoom details for the event.  All families must be approved for adoption to attend.  Please note:  It is MARE policy that only prospective adoptive parents participate in meet and greet events.  We ask that you do not have children/teens participate with you during the event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
There is a maximum capacity for these events!  We will be hosting these virtual events once a month along with our in-person events to continue to give youth and families more opportunities to participate!
