Mission West Virginia hosted a meeting on Wednesday morning in Philippi to talk with interested families and other agencies about the process of adoption.
The organization’s Frameworks Program goes out into the community and offers information, education and various means of support, all while putting to rest the myths of adoption.
“Do you have to be married? And you don’t. You can be married, single, divorced, same sex couple. You don’t have to own your own home, you can rent,” said Rachel Kinder, Mission West Virginia Frameworks Director. “Children need to have their own bed. I’m an adoptive mom. I adopted through foster care. I have a little boy who is three and I have a daughter who is two and it has been a great experience for us, and we’re so happy that we took the risk and did it.”
Mission West Virginia’s Frameworks Program will hold monthly meetings in Barbour County as part of its year -long recruiting process.
