Hey there

I am a chapter leader in Ottawa for an infertility support group. I just received information about the fall Adoption Resource Exchange that is held in Toronto twice a year. It is a two day event - usually the first day with speakers, etc. focusing on adoption topics. The second day, different workers from Children's Aid Societies across Ontario "showcase" (for lack of a better word) children that are waiting for homes that live in CAS. They have videos and blurbs describing the children. If there are any children you are interested in, you can then visit that child's worker to inquire about applying to adopt / providing your home study. Anyway, here is the info for those interested...

Oct. 20, 2007, Toronto -- "Empowerment and Diversity in Adoption", Ontario Adoption Conference, by Adoption Council of Ontario. Held in conjunction with the Adoption Resource Exchange on Oct. 21. 8-5, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 225 Front St. W. For adoptive and pre-adoptive parents, professionals and others. Choice of workshops; panel discussion and refreshments. Adoption agency displays and books for sale; display table by Family Helper: meet Robin and Heather. Pat Fenton, ACO, 416-482-0021,www.adoption.on.ca

Oct. 21, 2007, Toronto -- Adoption Resource Exchange (A.R.E.): videos and agency displays of Ontario children waiting for adoption, by Ontario Children's Aid Societies and Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services. Also at Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 9-5. Free.

All the best!
