Spaulding Adoption Training helps soon-to-be adoptive parents understand the adoption process and the needs of children awaiting adoption. It helps parents learn about their own strengths and challenges in building a loving adoptive family. 

In this course, participants will learn important skills needed for adoption, such as understanding the differences in adoptive families, dealing with feelings of loss, and making a lifelong commitment to the child they adopt. They’ll also discover what the family preparation and assessment involve and how to work well with adoption agencies. 

Additionally, the course explains the roles of different people involved in the adoption process, like social workers, lawyers, judges, and other support systems. By the end, participants will have the knowledge and tools to navigate adoption confidently and create a caring home for their adopted child. 

This is an online class. You will receive an email with a Zoom link 24 hours prior to training from Foster Parent Training Specialist Kathy Haddock.  Make sure you have downloaded the zoom app onto your device and plan to sign in a few minutes early to work through any technical difficulties. 

NOTE: These trainings are currently offered to families specifically sponsored by KVC and Children’s Division. If your licensing worker comes from an agency other than KVC or Children’s Division, please contact your licensing worker and/or the organizer below to confirm billing details.
