“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Adoption Learning Partners is excited to introduce Adoption Parenting Pathways (APP), a tool allowing adoptive parents to find local and online resources to specifically meet their family's needs.
A family can use APP to search an area of concern or interest and find workshops, therapists, support groups, etc. in their area and online. It's also a great tool for professionals to provide additional resources to families.
We're adding new resources everyday, so make sure to bookmark APP to use whenever you need.
Check out APP for yourself and open your pathway to resources!

Consider Donating to AFFEC this Christmas Season

During the season of giving
when you are making decisions about how you can make a difference
Think of AFFEC and the difference your donation can make to a waiting Foster Child

In the past six years, AFFEC, A Family for Every Child, has helped find forever families for over 700 children. Thier focus is on the hardest to place foster children; those are older children, sibling groups, minorities, and children with physical, psychological or developmental challenges.
Despite the best intentions, foster care has devolved from being a temporary arrangement into a permanent "solution" for many of the 500,000 foster children Nationwide. The result of long-term foster care may be seen in the faces of the children who are bounced from one temporary home to another.
Please join hands with AFFEC as they work to find a family for every child in foster care. Your donations and support help us to change children's lives forever.
During the months of November and December all donations will be matched dollar for dollar by a special donor. Make your donation stretch twice as far!
