Families of Joy Foundation organised dedicated counselling camps at New Delhi on March 26, 2017 and at Hyderabad on July 11, 2017.
The events received overwhelming response with all slots booked and parents asking for more.
Parents had the convenience to book their counselling slots online before hand, and they had to just walk-in at the chosen time, without any wait. Parents were treated to short films on adoption, Ready-Reckoner on 2017 Adoption Guidelines, a handy guide on adoption, and a free book on adoption. Parents then had one on one counselling session with our experienced counsellors. Together we discussed anxieties, questions, myths, doubts, opportunities, statistics, processes, grievances and assurances related to their journey in adoption. The highlight of the sessions were innovative props and games developed by Families of Joy that helped connect with parents immediately. We intend holding more such camps across the country at regular intervals.
