Opening hearts in Minnesota classrooms
Why do our volunteers care so much about educating Minnesota students about adoption? Well, there are lots of reasons. Perhaps the most important reason is that a classroom might be the only place students receive accurate information about the topic. One of our speakers, Kate, feels so strongly about adoption education that she put her own personal story into the form of a special video message to educators. Please take a moment to watch it:
AOCM makes education easily available, with the choice of an 33-minute video or an in-person presentation. An incentive is available to educators who use the video presentation and offer feedback via a brief survey. Learn more at adoptionoptionmn.org/education-and-outreach/
Adoption Option Council of Minnesota was pleased to host a Birth Mother’s Retreat on Sept. 19-21, 2014. This gathering, called “Stronger Together,” provided 16 birth mothers with a weekend of friendship, learning and support.
Thanks to all of our retreat supporters, including top-tier “Evergreen” sponsor Children’s Home and Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.
This was a life-changing event for these women who found they are, indeed, Stronger Together! Learn more.
