All those with an interest in ensuring that children live, grow and flourish in a permanent, safe and loving family are invited to attend. Four topic-focused tracks: Medical and Nutritional Institute; U.S. Foster Care and Domestic Adoption Curriculum; Intercountry Adoption Curriculum; and Orphan Care Curriculum.
