Join me (and thousands of other orphan care advocates) at the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) Summit in Atlanta, scheduled for September 28-30, 2022.   On those dates, thousands of foster and adoptive parents, orphan advocates, students, pastors, and leaders from every U.S. state and more than 30 nations will converge at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. The Summit also features concerts, more than 50 booths and exhibits, special resources for adoptive and foster families, a bookstore and a marketplace of global arts and crafts, and a host of other opportunities - including CEU credit via NASW.

I will be putting on my lawyer hat to lead a Better Together room with my law partner on the topic “Crisis Response: Balancing Transparency, Compassion, and Self-Defense,” so look for us there on Friday, September 30.  The Better Together Rooms provide “a unique space at CAFO2022 for groups of like-minded passionate people to explore, plan, problem-solve, and dream…together.”  We are excited to be at #CAFO2022, and I hope that many of you can join us.
