If you and your family have ever considered adoption, you know personally how overwhelming the process can be. Unfortunately there is no streamlined approach to adoption, and there is no “easy button”. Making the decision to adopt is one that only comes from God. After a family has made the initial decision that adoption is right for them, many other decisions must be made. Families have to decide whether they want to adopt an infant baby, a toddler, an older child, or perhaps a teenager. Another decision that must be made is from what country would you like to adopt. Would adopting a baby or foster child from the United States be best for your family or would you prefer to open your home to a child from another country that needs a family? Once you’ve made a decision to adopt, the financial aspect is possibly the scariest part. You think to yourself, how are we going to afford this?

All of these are significant decisions/concerns and ones that God will lead you through if you are quiet and patient. If God has brought adoption into your life, there is more to this than just bringing a child home. This decision has eternal significance and it is important that you let the Lord take the reins. This decision will go far beyond your immediate family; it will impact extended family, friends and neighbors, co-workers, and God’s church. That is why you need not rush into this without prayerful consideration and gentle leading from the Lord. When you are doing God’s will, He will make His path clear. He will open doors where He wants you to go, and close doors where you are not supposed to go. You won’t have to wonder.

Orphan Care Alliance (OCA) Adoption Seminars were created to help families through this complex process and present information to families so that the path isn’t so daunting. This Seminar gives you an opportunity to meet and fellowship with others who are considering adoption and present questions to experts in the adoption field. There will be many breakout sessions covering such topics as adoption myths, choosing agencies, attachment issues, finances, and more. You will gain invaluable information to take home, digest, and pray over so that you can feel comfortable about the many decisions that come along with adoption. OCA hopes to see you there!Please register free online
