Your Adoption Coach
Saturday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
Your Adoption Coach is designed to reach prospective and current adoptive families, couple, and singles with the resources they need to successfully bring their family together. We will examine international and domestic adoption, resources, costs, stories, highlight innovative agencies and bring the touching stories of families struggling and succeeding to the forefront. There is no greater community builder than Adoption! When we educate and encourage others to become involved, more people are inspired to adopt or be a part of a community of adoption. Our show aims to educate and inspire others to get involved in building a family be it on their own or helping someone close to them bring their family home together forever. Your Adoption Coach is broadcast live every Saturday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.
