We are dedicated to supporting you and your family for life. See our list of upcoming events and classes for adoptive families and adoptees of all ages.
All events held at our Bolingbrook office unless otherwise noted. Workshops and groups have a registration fee. Visit our calendar of events to register.
For the TBRI® workshop series, attendance at all four workshops is mandatory. If you have previously attended a series and only missed one workshop, you may sign up for that specific workshop once prior attendance has been verified. Please email Pam Shepard at firstname.lastname@example.org to request approval.
