“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.
