Adoption.com launched a unique resource to help individuals who are seeking to reunite with birth family or a child they placed for adoption. The Adoption Search and Reunion Course is the culmination of 12 months of work interviewing the leading experts in adoption search and reunion.
The series is comprised of 16 videos with over two hours of information, including tangible steps to take and clear advice from professionals who specialize in search and reunion. The list of contributors includes adoption search angels, private investigators, an attorney, a social worker, a genealogist, a social worker and adoptees who have reunited with birth family.
These leading experts will answer the questions you have been searching for answers to – and some you may never have thought to ask. They have devoted their lives to this process and for the first time all of these experts can be accessed in one place through the new Adoption Search and Reunion Course.
The course includes not only 16 videos you can view in order or piecemeal, but also gives you access to PDF documents containing tangible and detailed instructions on how to use every recommended resource. This course is the first of its kind and there is no other resource available to give you so much information from so many leading experts in one place.
