“Adoption – the Loving Choice” is the topic of a presentation Monday, March 4 at 7 p.m. at St. Peter Parish, 2835 Manor Road in West Brandywine, Chester County.
The presentation will be geared to couples with fertility issues, couples who are considering expanding their home to make room for a child who needs one, or a woman in a crisis pregnancy who may consider adoption.
Couples who have decided to explore adoption may feel confused or overwhelmed by the process. They will hear clear answers from couples who have been through the adoption process and professionals who assist adoptive families.
Adoptive parents will share their testimonials of how they came to terms with their infertility and their choice to form their families through adoption.
Cheryl Parkhill of Gladney Center for Adoption and Lance Nelson, a Chester County attorney, will give practical information about foreign and domestic agency adoptions as well as private adoptions in Pennsylvania.
The talk is sponsored by the St. Peter Parish Respect Life Committee as part of its series on “Life, Love and Sexuality.”
The presentation is free and reservations are not needed. For more information on this or future presentations, visit www.saintpeterchurch.net/respect_life.html or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jo Christof at 610-942-3571.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
