Adoption Training  

Adoption training is designed to provide specific information to certified foster and kinship families who are planning to adopt about the legal process and requirements for adoption, services available and core adoption issues that children and families may experience such as grief, loss, self-identity. The goal of this training is to help families gain understanding about the emotional, behavioral and other special needs children may have as a result of abuse or neglect, the impact this may have on the adoptive family and potential strategies that can be utilized to address issues that may arise. The MCDHS is committed to helping families experience and maintain successful adoptions.
