I’m happy to announce that I’ll be presenting a workshop at the 2016 APC (Adoptive Parents Committee) conference in Brooklyn on November 20, 2016. I’ll be posting more later, including a short video talking about my workshop, but the presenters also invited us to create a short video on “Why I love the APC.”
I’ve been fortunate enough to present for the Adoptive Parents Committee of Long Island last month, talking about talking with your kids about adoption, and met many wonderful families at this supportive event. And last year I attended the conference and met both parents and professionals on this journey.
I have to say, I have been impressed as a member and attendee at the support, discussion and dialogue each time I have gone to an event. I recorded this short video to talk about “why I love the APC” but the main reason is this: adoptive families need support and need to know what resources are out there, and this is a forum that brings people together who are on this journey to make real exchange possible.
If you are an adoptive parent in New York, I encourage you to join and attend the November 2016 event. And if you are interested in my 2 cents worth, here is my video submission, why I love the APC:
