On Tuesday, March 21, 2023, AdoptOntario invites you to Power of Permanency, an Online Adoption Event supporting incredible youth across Ontario. Not only will you have an opportunity to learn more about adoption and available resources, but you will also learn about an amazing youth looking for permanency. Register now!
Meet 17-Year Old Azia!
Azia is a friendly and outgoing youth who enjoys art and fashion. You can typically find Azia sewing new designs, sketching what they see, or enjoying a round of video games. Azia has tremendous potential as a student, and is exploring the different ways they learn. They recently taught themselves to play the piano through online videos and have mastered several songs. Azia is looking for permanency in a home with one or two parents, with proximity to the Greater Toronto Area, where they can be celebrated as the incredible human they are.
The evening will begin with an education component provided by Never Too Late (NTL). The presentation will focus on common misconceptions about older youth, and the qualities that make a family successful. Prior to the event, you can learn more about the incredible work being done by NTL, and review additional resources, such as the importance of youth networks (you can also find additional webinars below).
