Irving, Texas Adoption and Foster Care Conference

Michael and Amy Monroe are doing wonderful work providing resources for families and this conference is at their home church where they lead Tapestry. I'll be stopping by on Friday on my way to the Chosen Marathon near Austin, TX!
 The 2012 Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Conference is only two weeks away, but there is still room for more -- so make plans to attend on Saturday, October 27, 2012, at Irving Bible Church.
This year’s Tapestry Conference offers several unique opportunities!  In fact, the conference actually consists of three separate events — and you are invited to attend any or all of them.
On Friday, October 26, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Tapestry will host an Attachment Workshop led by Dr. Curt Thompson, author of Anatomy of the Soul.  The workshop is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, professionals, ministry leaders, and others who desire to pursue lasting change in how they relate to the children they love and serve.  Training credits for foster and adoptive parents will be available, as well as CEUs for Texas licensed social workers and counselors.  Due to the tremendous response, only 20 spaces are still available for the workshop -- so register today!
On Friday evening, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, Tapestry will host Listen To Our Hearts.  This unique presentation will focus on the experiences, stories, and perspectives of adopted persons, and will feature Carissa Woodwyk, speaker and author of Before You Were Mine.
And last but not least, on Saturday, October 27, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Tapestry will host the 2012 Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Conference, featuring Dr. Curt Thompson as the general session speaker. 
The 2012 Tapestry Conference will feature 18 new breakout sessions covering a wide range of topics relevant to adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption, adopted persons, professionals, and ministry leaders.
As in year's past, the Tapestry Conference is completely free, and includes a light breakfast, lunch, conference materials, and training credits for adoptive and foster parents.
You won't want to miss the 2012 Tapestry Conference and pre-conference events.  Visit to register online.
