Annual Families Supporting Adoption conference; 'Together by Divine Design'

The process of adoption can be a very emotional and difficult road to travel. Whether an expectant single mother, a couple yearning to have a child, or a loving parent or friend who desires to comfort another involved in the process, adoption affects many. In an effort to encourage all involved with adoption, supporters and advocates of adoption gathered for the annual Families Supporting Adoption 2010 National Conference, held Friday and Saturday in the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah.

LDS Family Services and Families Supporting Adoption joined forces in providing more than 50 classes to help and encourage individuals involved in some part of the adoption process. All classes focused on this year's conference theme, "Together by Divine Design."

"I came to get information about adoption to take back to my area," said Erin Packard, who, with her husband, Danny, adopted their two sons and serves as chairwoman of the San Diego FSA Chapter. "I also realized I am not alone, and it was good to get the tools to be able to face situations when they arise."
