5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join Spence-Chapin staff and our featured guest Meggin (Nam) Holtz, MSW for a discussion about our interests, disinterests, experiences or thoughts about the process of search. How do we as adoptive parents facilitate these conversations at home? How do we manage our children’s expectations around the search and reunion process? What does it mean for our children to go through the search process and be successful or unsuccessful?
This event will be facilitated virtually and advanced registration is required. Register below to receive the Zoom link.
All participants will receive access in advance to view the film by Nam Holtz called “Found in Korea” as this film will serve as a basis for our conversation.
