Catholic Social Service Hosts Workshop on Infant Adoption

Special to the SKR

Have you and your spouse ever thought about adopting a baby? Admittedly, it’s not a small decision! There are many things to consider: can we afford to adopt? Why should or shouldn’t we adopt? What does it entail? What kind of protections and support would we have? What information do we need to know about raising an adopted child that’s different from raising a child that was born to us? How do we respond to our adopted child’s questions later on?
While there are many unknowns, it is also possible for couples to be armed with some of the most current information available so that they can make the best decision about adoption for themselves and their family. Catholic Social Service is hosting an Adoption Workshop on Saturday, February 28, 2015 from 9 am - 4 pm in room 22 at Newman College, 236 San Jose, Dodge City KS. Lunch will be provided. If you are interested in learning more about adoption, this workshop will help to demystify the journey. Registration is required.
“Catholic Social Service is committed to providing education and support for birth-parents as they make their adoption plan, and to the adoptive families,” said Lori Titsworth, Adoption Social Worker. “I believe so many times that people are interested in adoption but believe it is too expensive, there is a long waiting list, or they have a misunderstanding of adoption, let alone an ‘open adoption.’ We encourage families who want to learn more about adoption to join us for this educational opportunity. You won’t be sorry.”
As part of a national Catholic Charity network that has been looking after the needs of children, parents and families for more than 100 years, Catholic Social Service is licensed by the State of Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and has been providing adoption services in southwest Kansas for 50 years.
