Friday 1-5 p.m. Cost: Additional $25 per person ($20 if you register for the workshop and conference together)
Presented by Debra Delulio Jones M.Ed. and her husband, Alan, this half-day workshop for parents will include practical application strategies and audience participation that brings laughter, learning and some “light bulb” moments. Learn the risk factors and the basics of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® developed by researchers at TCU Institute of Child Development. Overcome what feels counter-intuitive as you parent a child from a background of early harm or neglect.
Conference presented in partnership with ABBA Canada and a coalition of Calgary area churches including RockPointe, Centre Street, First Alliance and Glamorgan Church of God.
And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.Matthew 18:5

Waiting to Belong started as a movement to help the more than 30,000 kids in Canada who are waiting to be adopted. Our goal is to see as many waiting kids as possible be placed into loving, forever families. We work to shape realistic perceptions of adoption and to encourage the body of Christ to come alongside adoptive families in practical, loving ways.
