At MLJ Adoptions, we believe it is important to provide continued support to children and families that goes beyond post adoption reports. We recognize that parenting in adoption often requires more of the parents, and we offer support without judgment.
We strive to support families before, during, and after adoption. We always encourage families to stay involved in an adoption community to get the continued support they often need during the adoption process and after bringing their child home. It is important to us to provide the support necessary to encourage adoptive families, equip parents with new techniques and information, and empower families through difficult times. Support Services are available to families touched by adoption anywhere and are not limited to clients of MLJ Adoptions.
- Free adoption support group meetings are held regularly via AnyMeeting. During these meetings you can bring your questions and difficult situations to address with a Support Specialist and other supportive parents. These meetings are open to the community; however, we ask that you signup on the support group page to let us know that you plan to attend, so we can notify all of any changes or cancellations due to weather or low turnout.
- Individual Support Sessions may be scheduled via AnyMeeting, teleconference, or in our offices with one of our Support Specialists, all of whom are educated, trained, and have experience with the special issues that affect children and families in adoption. Brooke Randolph, LMHC, is also available for family counseling; however, all counseling appointments will be held in our offices. Your confidentiality is always a priority to MLJ Adoptions.
- Clients of MLJ Adoptions benefit from a protected online community where they can meet and discuss with other clients in the midst of the adoption process. Log-in Instructions
- We also host cultural community events year-round as an opportunity for parents and children to gain comfort from others that understand the adoption journey. These events also serve as a way to celebrate your child’s culture and create lifelong memories! You can attend these by checking out our events calendar.
