For Adoption STAR Prospective Adoptive Parents – Our Newborn/Infant Care Class!

An important class (especially for agency clients that are looking to adopt their first child) is happening later this month!
Every year, Adoption STAR offers its prospective adoptive parent clients an opportunity to attend a newborn/infant care class here at the agency. We realize that different clients will come to the table with different levels of experience when it comes to caring for a newborn. As a result, we are committed to offering this class; we want to help our clients feel more comfortable/confident in their ability to provide care for a newborn.

The 2015 offering is slated for Monday, April 13th from 6pm to 7pm at our main office (131 John Muir Drive Amherst, NY 14228). The class will be facilitated by a group of practicing nurses that are currently pursuing an additional nursing degree at Daemen College. This class is exclusively for Adoption STAR clients only. Attendees can receive 5 educational credits as a result of attending this class. Topics for discussion may include diapering, swaddling, bathing, hair/skin care, and more. Practical information will be offered and questions are welcome and encouraged! To RSVP for the class, please call us at 716-639-3900 or e-mail us at

While its normal to feel a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of caring for your new baby (especially if you’re parenting for the first time), there’s a lot you can do to prepare. Attending this class is an example of making the appropriate preparations for your little one’s eventual arrival.
