CAFFA is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our 24th full day Parenting Through Adoption Conference! We have an exciting lineup of Speakers, Exhibitors, and Sponsors. Our day will also feature numerous workshops for pre-adoptive, foster, waiting, and experienced parents, as well as for Adoption Professionals. As always, we will offer shopping from Fair Trade vendors and an Exhibitor Hall to make sure you leave with a headful of information and an armload of resources!
Great news! We have been approved for 6 hours of Illinois foster care license / training for prospective parents, and 6 CEU education hours for adoption professionals seeking Social Worker credits.
Finally, anyone involved with adoption is welcome to attend, regardless of CAFFA membership.
If you are hoping to adopt or are an adoptive parent join us in March for our 14 day online classroom education experience where we tackle what we believe to be some of the most important topics in the complex adoption journey.

WE are SO excited to train our FIRST EVER non-agency community leader!
Martha Farnsworth considers her doubly blessed by adoption-as both a birthmom to a beautiful daughter and as an adoptee herself. She resides in the mountains of Idaho with her husband and son. In 2012, she received her doctorate in occupational therapy from Creighton University and has focused her work in pediatrics and outpatient rehabilitation.
She is humbled to have the opportunity to work with Lifetime Healing, LLC to be the first non-adoption affiliate to be trained to provide support groups in the southeast Idaho and western Wyoming area.
We are so honored to join forces with Embrace Grace and their LOVE IN A BOX program!
Join us for a day of service and tacos as we celebrate and honor Mothers from all sides of the Adoption Triad. ( you don't have to have a tie to adoption to attend! We welcome ALL OF YOU!)
