Adoption Events


Adoption Events to build the Adoption Community

A New Beginning Adoption Agency recognizes the importance of building an adoption community with the adoptive families, birth families and adoptees.  Each is a unique family and share their adoption stories with one another and build life-long relationships and support systems.   In May we host a Birth Mother Tea Party to celebrate birth mothers and their love for their babies and children.  In September we host an annual adoptive family bbq which celebrates all of the individuals of the adoption triad.  Throughout the year we plan additional events for adoptees and family gatherings to enjoy.  We hope you’ll pick one or pick several to attend.
