The proposed amendments made to the Children’s Act has been met with outcry from the professional community driving adoption in South Africa, complicating an already tricky topic. 

If you've recently become an adoptive parent or are currently considering adoption, the Arise Adoption Conference comes highly recommended. 

"We enjoyed connecting with other people on the same journey as us and delving into the complex issues together." – Bongi Hill, Adoptive Parent

The event will be taking place in Cape Town (August), and Joburg (October) offering several workshops facilitated by registered professionals. The conference will feature testimonies from adult adoptees and others who are able to share from their experiences in our South African context. 

"It was practical and made me reflect deeply on decisions we needed to be mindful of as a family before our son joined us"- CM, Prospective Adoptive Parent. 

While faith-based, the conference is open to all families from all backgrounds, and topics covered include: 

  • Transracial Adoption and Identity
  • Single Parent Adoption
  • Infertility and Adoption
  • The Legal Process for single parenting and parenting as a couple
