This is AKA's annual conference. We have been hosting this event for 26 years in Austin. Presenters in the field come from all over the country, bringing with them their knowledge and expertise as it relates to the field of foster care and adoption. Topics are relevant to adoptees (adopted people), birth parents and foster, prospective and adoptive parents. The goals of AKA and this conference are to create dialogue to transform adoption to a more open and honest experience, where the needs of all are considered and honored. Education is the key in improving our foster care and adoption practices. Come join us as we continue the discussion about What Adoption Can Teach the World.
