The Event

The Joburg Arise Adoption Conference is back for 2019 and the Arise Team are flying up to facilitate this one. The Arise Adoption Conference is designed for all current and prospective adoptive parents wanting to learn more about the core issues of adoption. It's also great for extended families and friends of adoptive families.

This year we have new content and resources, break out sessions and interactive talks as well as live testimonies from adoptive parents and an adult adoptee - so even if you've attended one of our conferences before, we'd love to host you again!

We'll cover these topics:

-Theological Framework for Adoption


-Grief and Loss

-Infertility and Adoption

-Blended Families

-Single Parent Adoption

-The Legal Process

-Racial Identity in Transracial Adoption

One family had this to say: "This conference was the best possible preparation for adoption I could imagine. I highly recommend this day to anyone considering adoption!"
