Information Meetings

Do you have a lot of questions about adopting a Rhode Island child who is in state care? Are you trying to decide whether it’s right for you? Or would you like to get the adoption process underway? If the answer is yes – or even maybe, to any of these questions, we suggest that you come to one of our Information Meetings. These meetings are held once a month and feature presenters from Adoption Rhode Island and the Department of Children, Youth, and Families, who will explain the steps of the adoption process and provide an overview of the children waiting to be adopted, and the rewards and challenges involved. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Applications to start the adoption process are available at the meeting if you decide you are interested. Families also learn about other routes they can take to become involved in the lives of waiting children.

The meetings are free and an R.S.V.P. is not required.

Because of the sensitive subjects discussed in the meetings, they are not appropriate for children to attend. Most meetings are held at our office at 2 Bradford Street in Providence (Click here for directions). The upcoming schedule for the remainder of 2018 is as follows:

Providence – Meetings begin at 6:00pm
