Adoption events set

Families exploring adoption can find information and guidance at two upcoming events.

Our Lady of the Chesapeake, Lake Shore, will hold its second annual Adoption Fair Sept. 14, from 1- 4 p.m. A dozen agencies will be on site; workshop topics include infant adoption; international adoption, legal aspects and birthparent services.

“We had over 80 couples last year,” said Joyce Heid, one of the organizers, “and we’re hoping for more this year.”
