2020 Choosing to care adoption and foster care conference
We are excited to announce that our 2020 Choosing to Care Conference will be held on Saturday, February 1, at Prince Avenue Baptist Church from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Dr. Sharen Ford will be joining us as our speaker for main session, and as always we will offer breakouts covering various topics related to adoption and foster care, allowing you to customize your experience to best meet your needs.
Dr. Sharen Ford is the program director for Focus on the Family’s adoption and orphan care efforts. She helps raise awareness of the need for adoptive families to provide loving and stable homes for the more than 100,000 waiting children in the U.S. foster care system. She also makes post-placement resources available for adoptive families.
Ford has spoken at a variety of conferences on adoption and orphan care issues including the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) annual conference, Bethany Christian Services’ annual conference, the White House Conference on Adoption and the Federal Children’s Bureau Child Welfare Conference.
Married since 1991, Ford lives in Aurora, Colo., with her husband. She has one daughter and loves watching her grandson play sports. She also enjoys traveling and wants to see Egypt, Rome, Israel, Australia, and Fiji. She hopes to go on mission trips to Africa, as well.
Please save the date and make plans to join us. As always, this is a free event, and free (but limited) childcare will be available. Registration will open later this fall. We look forward to serving you and your family again at conference next year!
