If you’re connected to Adoption STAR (as an Ohio-based client or as a regular Adoption STAR blog reader, for example), you might be familiar with Lauren McClain. Lauren has delivered well-received presentations at Adoption STAR’s Ohio office in the past, such as the “Adoption 101” seminar she delivered back in August of 2014. If you happened to miss that presentation, Lauren will be offering it again on Tuesday, April 14th at 6:00pm in our Loveland, Ohio office.

Last week Friday, Lauren was kind enough to share a thorough blog post she had written for her law firm (Sams, Fischer, Packard, and Schuessler). The blog post, entitled EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW OHIO ADOPTION LAW, dated January 8th, 2015, can be found here.

We hope you find Lauren’s article to be as insightful as we did, and we thank Lauren for being committed to sharing important information and resources with our agency and its clients. As we’ve said before in many blog posts, Adoption is a legal process that is changing and evolving all the time. The recent changes in Ohio law (as outlined in Lauren’s article) are a great example of this reality.
