A Nonprofit Organization Hosts Mini-Conference For Adopted Children

In central Jersey, a mini-conference was hosted by a nonprofit organization. The event was specifically created for adopted children and their parents. Concerned Parents For Adoption (CPFA) is an organization dedicated to the belief that “every child deserves a family.” All volunteer based, the organization aims to support child advocacy, offer education, promote networking, and sponsor awareness. The conference has helped many children who are adoptees know that they are not alone.

“The best lesson of life that adoption teaches us is that love does not depend upon a blood relationship. It can cross racial lines, country lines, gender-related lines, and any other line that the world can draw,” states Pat Bennett, president of CPFA.

The conference lasts for about half of the day, and there are sessions available for parents and children alike. Most of the workshops focus on helping adoptees cope with feelings of being adopted, or offer tools and strategies for unwanted questions or issues that adoptees and parents may face.
