On Saturday, April 29, 2017, MyersStrickland, PLLC had the opportunity to be a part of a resource fair for prospective foster families, current foster families, kinship families, and adoptive families. The event was a collaboration between Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents, Grace Retreat Foster/Adoptive Services, and the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona.
Families for Private Adoption (FPA), a non-profit, is expanding to Arizona. The mission of FPA is to provide support and education to those seeking to build their families through independent (non-agency) domestic private adoption. Some of the ways in which FPA accomplishes this are through bi-annual workshops, a buddy system to help connect prospective adoptive parents with those who have successfully adopted, and social events throughout the year. FPA is an all-volunteer run organization. The President of West-Coast FPA is Alison England, an adoptive parent and social worker. She has partnered with Heather M. Strickland of MyersStrickland, PLLC to help host the very first West-Coast workshop to be held on April 22, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Estrella Mountain Community College. For more information about FPA and the upcoming training, please visit their website at ffpa.org.
