Building Families through Adoption aims to prepare potential adoptive parents for the realities and joys of adoption. All potential adoptive parents are welcomed but it is particularly valuable for persons wanting to adopt from Alaska’s foster care system.  This course covers Adoption Expectations, Birth Parents, Talking to Children about Adoption, Understanding Grief and Loss, Attachment and Trauma Informed Parenting, and Identity.  Courses start twice a month.  All participants must attend the “First Steps” orientation before beginning the class.   Click here for The Building Families through Adoption Flyer.
