GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — If you’re interested in adopting a child through the Michigan Foster System, there’s an event coming up you’ll want to attend.

D.A. Blodgett is hosting “Images of Adoption,” a way for potential adoptive parents to view children searching for forever homes.

There will be pictures and videos of the children along with members from all the local adoption agencies to answer all your adoption questions. And there will be a local foster and adoptive family to talk about the process.

“They’ll get an idea of the children who are available for adoption,” Ledale Hayes said. “They will be able to see specific children, get more information about them. They can sign up and get assigned a worker, information will go out to them.”

The event takes place Thursday, November 6 from 5-7 p.m. at D.A. Blodgett – St. Johns at 805 Leonard Street NE in Grand Rapids.

RSVP is not needed.

    I am interested in adopting. The issue is that I am on S.S.D. and low income. I have some physical disabilities that limit my physical capabilities such as not being able to lift or walk for long periods, etc. due to spinal injuries and Fibromyalgia. I would like to find out if I would be able to help kids anyway. Iwould like to know if I would get financial help to support the child. Thx.

    Da Blodgett is by far the worst agency to go through in Michigan. I got screwed over 3-4 yrs ago by the agency and parents who adopted my 2 girls. I was promised things and was lied to and they backstabbed me…..I would never recommend this trashy messed up agency to anyone. If any parent is adopting their child out/surrendering their rights, please consider a different agency.
