The Adoptive Families of the Capital Region Inc., AFCR, will host a panel discussion for adoptive parents of school aged children. A panel of adoptive moms and dads will speak on their experiences and answer questions of the attendees on how adoption has impacted their kids school experiences, their parenting and what to consider as the new school year starts.

This program is for adults only and registration is not required.
