Expert Q&A Webinar: Parenting After Older Child Adoption

Join older-child adoption expert Regina M. Kupecky, LSW, to ask any questions you have during Adoptive Families' Adoption Expert Q&A Webinar: Parenting After Older Child Adoption on March 12, 2013 from 1PM to 2PM EDT. Submit questions in advance by posting a comment below.
