Meeting will provide details on adoption

Holt International Children’s Services, an inter-country adoption agency, is looking for families interested in adopting a child from overseas.

The nonprofit organization will host an Adoption Information Meeting at 6:30 p.m. April 11 at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters, Symmes Drive, Manalapan.

"The adoption picture has changed dramatically in this country," said Susan Soon-Keum Cox, Holt’s spokeswoman. "Children are waiting for families. The need to get them out of orphanages and into adoptive families is quite urgent."

Holt social workers will provide information about the organization’s adoption programs and the basic procedure for international adoption.

A family who has adopted through Holt will share their personal experience.

The meeting is open to all. For more information, call Cindy Page at (732) 866-6675 or (609) 882-4972.
