Virtual Waiting Family Forum

Wednesday, November 8, 2023/Categories: Featured Event

Event date: 12/4/2023 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM Export event

The process of waiting to be matched with a child can be exciting, confusing and frustrating at times. To assist you through this process, the MARE Adoption Navigators are hosting a Waiting Family Forum. Join us and learn exactly what happens to your inquiries after you submit them on the MARE website at; find out what you can do to make the most of your wait time; learn ways to strengthen your inquiries; get tips on how to effectively advocate for your family; and meet other waiting families. 

Families who are approved to adopt and those waiting for their homestudy to be approved are welcome to attend. If you are in the beginning stages of adoption approval, I would suggest attending our next Adoption 101 training instead of this training.  

The next Waiting Family Forum will take place on:
