A webinar is a seminar that is broadcast on the Internet. An adoption webinar is a webinar devoted to educating people about all aspects of adoption. From domestic adoption to international adoption to foster care, there is a webinar out there to help you understand more about adoption.
Webinars are a convenient way to explore domestic and international adoption. Many adoption agencies offer free webinars to those wanting to learn more about adoption topics. Topics include getting started, adopting an older child, trans-racial adoption, talking to your child about adoption, and adjustment issues, just to name a few.
Before signing up for a webinar, confirm itís going to cover the topics youíre interested in learning about. For example, if you have your heart set on international adoption, attending a webinar on domestic adoption wonít get you much further. However, it might help to learn more about domestic adoption, especially if youíre on the fence about which program to pursue.
Hereís a listing of upcoming adoption webinars. Iíll update this article every few months so that youíll have a chance to attend one of these helpful sessions.
