The process of waiting to be matched with a child can be exciting, confusing and frustrating at times. To assist you through this process, the MARE Adoption Navigators host quarterly Waiting Family Forums. Join us and learn exactly what happens to your inquiries after you submit them; find out what you can do to make the most of your wait time; learn ways to strengthen your inquiries; get tips on how to effectively advocate for your family; and meet other waiting families.

Families who are approved to adopt and those completing their home study are all welcome to attend.

Look for future Waiting Family Forums on our home page under Events. Pre-registration is required.

If you have any further questions, please contact the MARE Adoption Navigator Supervisor via email at or by phone at 1-800-589-MARE.
