For families interested in beginning the infant adoption process with Spence-Chapin, there is an informational webinar being held online on Monday, September 21, 2015 from 6:30pm – 7:30pm. Pre-registration is required and can be completed easily at https://spence-chapin.org/events/domestic-adoption-webinar. The webinar is the best place to get acquainted with the program and to obtain an application.
As birth and adoptive families start their adoption journey, Spence-Chapin’s team of experienced social workers provides guidance, education, and emotional support throughout the process. In addition to adoption services, Spence-Chapin offers supportive, non-judgmental, comprehensive options counseling to women trying to plan for the future of their infants –whether they decide to parent themselves, to seek family support, to apply for public assistance or to explore adoption. “There is a need in the community for unbiased counseling to women facing unplanned pregnancy and considering their options,” says Monica Baker, Associate Director of Domestic Adoption, Spence-Chapin. Families who adopt through Spence-Chapin are reassured knowing their child’s birth parents are receiving optimal services.
