Adoption and Foster Care Conferences

Adoptive and Foster Parents,

We know it can be difficult at times and rewarding at times to raise up children from hard places.  As you pour out all of your energy and efforts, we want you to have some time to learn, grow, rest and refresh alongside other parents in your similar life stages.  There are two conferences coming up this spring that we want to bring to your attention, and help you attend.  For those actively involved at ClearView we would like to pay half of your way to either of these two conferences.
