The "Let's Talk Adoption" Conference is a dynamic and educational event coordinated entirely by CPFA volunteers and co-sponsored by the Rutgers University School of Social Work and the Adoption Agency Council of New Jersey. The goal is to educate and support those involved in the adoption constellation. This non-profit conference has received accolades throughout its 38-year history by both parents and professionals.

This year the conference will be held virtually! There will be a keynote address as well as 15 workshops for pre-/post-adoptive parents, foster parents, child welfare professionals, adoptees, and kinship guardians.

The keynote address, “Knowing the Unknowable: Insight from Adoptees Working in Adoption,” will be presented by Steve Kalb, LMSW, Director of Post Adoption Services, Joli Hanlon, BA, Director of Holt Adoptee Camp, and Caitlin Howe, MA, Adoptee Programs Coordinator, all from Holt International.

CPFA is a non-profit organization founded in 1972 in the State of NJ dedicated to the belief that every child deserves a family. CPFA is not an adoption agency, but an all-volunteer group working to support those who wish to adopt, and to provide educational and networking resources to those in the adoption community.
