What 2023 Attendees Had to Say

"What a fabulous conference! Truly one of the very best I’ve attended:

  • The speakers were exceptional,
  • The venue accommodating and comfortable,
  • Organizing a conference is an enormous amount of work, but it was so well organized it came across as seamless!"

"Thank you so much for the AMAZING conference last week. The conference inspired me individually and [my agency] in so many ways."

"I just want to say it was a great conference and I especially REALLY enjoyed all the panels.  It was so interesting to hear both from adoptees and birth parents."

“We are so glad we came. We were introduced to agencies that didn’t know about us and we were able to enhance relationships with agencies that did know us. We hope to be back next year!”
- JT Olson, Both Hands, 2023 Exhibitor
