    This course is very important if you are desiring to adopt an infant as it gives you practical tips on how to present yourself to a potential birth mother who may select you to adopt her baby.

  • Will I receive a certificate of completion for the course?

  • Can I watch the courses together with my spouse or do we each have to have our own log in?

    Just like our in-person courses, the pricing is based per participant. Each purchase should be logged under an individual’s name, and only that name will be tied to the proof of participation.
