Child Adoption Education Day

Saturday’s Child Adoption Education Day at Old McMicky’s Farm was a huge success. CAED was one of the largest child adoption education events in the nation with over 450 people coming out to learn about adoption and to talk to the agencies and to adoptive parents. Over 1400 people visited the CAED webpage.

Old McMicky’s Farm was recognized by the Congress of the United States of America for the Farm’s Work for adoption of foster children.

Did you know that Lauren & Tony Dungy made the public service announcement for our Child Adoption Education Day?  Please watch the CAED video through one of the two links listed below.

We are very pleased to announce the Old McMicky’s Farm First Annual Tampa Bay Child Adoption Education Day!

Have you or someone you know been considering starting or expanding your Family? There are many children right here in the Tampa Bay area who absolutely deserve and want to be a part of a loving Family.

In one afternoon, let us show you how easy it is to adopt, all of the support available both pre and post adoption, and the amazing rewards of adoption and starting or growing your Family.

Child Adoption Education at Old McMicky's Farm

Old McMicky’s Farm is bringing together key agencies and organizations involved in Adoption so they can explain the process in a brief, easy to understand Child Adoption Education Day. Contributing agencies will include Lead Agency – Eckerd Community Alternatives plus organizations and agencies from Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties representing the Foster and Adoptive Parent Association, Adoption Support Services, Guardian Ad Litem, The Heart Gallery, The Children’s Home, plus best of all – getting to hear from current adoptive parents and children about what it has meant to them and brought to their lives. See all of the participating agencies listed below.

If you currently have children and would like them to hear about the adoption process, you are welcome to have them attend with you. This event starts at 2:00pm. Please plan to arrive early so you have time to get settled in.

While the main  focus of the Child Adoption Education Day is adoption, there are many ways you can help Tampa Bay area children.

We invite everyone to visit the websites of these dedicated family service organizations (links below), and register to attend the day.
