International Adoption Training
The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh works in partnership with several agencies, and offers some additional services independently, to help people who are pursuing international adoption.
Family Studies for International Adoption
International Adoption Collaborative Training (IACT)
Often, families who are pursuing international adoption find that they must use several different agencies to handle various aspects of the adoption – from the initial search and legal documentation, to a licensed family study and counseling services. Few agencies are equipped to provide in-depth preparation for the issues unique to international adoption.
In response, The Children’s Home, along with Catholic Charities of Pittsburgh and Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Pittsburgh, created the International Adoption Training Collaborative (IACT) in 2006. The group provides prospective adoptive parents with international adoption knowledge and resources to help parent a child from a foreign country.
IACT holds seminars several times per year to help support parents considering international adoption. Visit our calendar of events for upcoming activities, dates and locations.
