Adoption & Foster Care
Irving Bible Church | Irving, Texas
Beyond the Basics
The 2016 Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Conference will be held October 21-22 at Irving Bible Church. Last year we went Back to Basics, so this year we decided to go Beyond the Basics. Each of our presenters will spend the first part of their sessions introducing connected parenting principles and strategies and then they will share creative and next level ways to implement them. Our kids need parents who are committed to their healing and who are willing to be creative in their parenting.
9:00am - 4:00pm
Be sure to check back soon for more details concerning the upcoming conference.
Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Ministry
Tapestry is the adoption and foster care ministry of Irving Bible Church. It is a place of loving, supportive, and authentic community where we encourage and equip families along their adoption and foster care journey. We know that the journey truly begins when a child is welcomed into a family, and we provide relevant information and resources through our Empowered to Connect parent training to equip families for the journey of building trust, restoring hope and relational healing.
We hope you’re able to make it to the conference. In the meantime, you may be interested in checking out this adoption-related resource on the web. Empowered To Connect provides audio, video and written content that offers hope and help to adoptive and foster parents.
Empowered to Connect Parent Training equips parents with a holistic understanding of their child’s needs and development while empowering them with the tools and strategies to effectively meet those needs, build trust, and help their child heal and grow. The training is taught from a Christian and focuses on a range of topics and issues relevant to adoptive and foster parents, including helping parents understand the impact of their child’s history, what they themselves bring to the parent-child relationship, the fundamentals of attachment, the impact of fear, and the importance of meeting their child’s sensory processing, nutritional, and other processing needs.
