Hope for Orphans Institute conference to address special needs and at-risk adoptions

By August 30, 2011

USA (MNN) — Do you know a family considering adoption or a family struggling since adopting? Are you interested in learning the latest on how to best serve the increasing number of families adopting special needs or at-risk kids? Would you like help on how to best prepare for and help manage a possible disruption?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, the Hope for Orphans Institute has a conference for you to attend.

Hope for Orphans Institute is hosting a conference September 16 and 17 at the Hope Center in Plano, Texas. The conference will address special needs and at-risk adoptions, adoption disruption, and pre/post adoption support for families and children.

The conference will be helpful to families who wish to multiply Christ's love through adoption, but also to those who are connected with adoption in other ways.

The conference is designed to equip and help orphan ministry leaders, pastors, counselors, social workers and advocates, as well to better serve the increasing number of families adopting special needs, at-risk and older children.

The conference will feature leading experts on serving adoptive families and will include worship with Grammy and Dove Award winning Geoff Moore.

We saved the best news for last, though. It may be short notice, but since Buckner International is partnering with Hope for Orphans, they've decided to offer a deal. If you register online, you can get 50% off the registration fee by entering the promo code BUCKNER.

As an added bonus, licensed social workers, counselors, and Marriage and Family therapists can receive Continuing Education Units (CEU) credits.

You can learn how to better serve and reach the most desperate of orphans with Christ's love. Register here.
