Family Matters of the Adoption Triad and the Social Work Heroes Behind Them

In Partnership with NASW-IL


Family Matters of the Adoption Triad and the Social Work Heroes Behind Them

Date: Monday, February, 12th at 10 am

Location: Zoom

Description: The journey of adoption extends beyond the finalization court date, in fact, adoption is a journey that is present throughout the lives of everyone in the adoption triad (adoptees, birth parents and adoptive parents). During my presentation, I aim to educate other social work professionals on who the members of the adoption triad are, what the challenges/experiences are for each party, why it matters and how other social work professionals can use their experience to provide needed resources for those in the triad.

Presenter: Alexandra Hoops is a licensed social worker in Nevada who holds a Master of Social Work as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Criminal Justice from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. With a career of nearly 10 years in the field, Alexandra serves as the Director of Adoption Services for Loving Hearts Adoption Services. In her role, Alexandra is responsible for facilitating infant adoptions, developing educational programs, leading birth mother support groups and more.
