Those looking to adopt an older child or one with special needs are invited to attend an informational workshop at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 20, at Catholic Family Center, 87 N. Clinton Ave., Rochester. Children waiting in foster care are on average 8 to 9 years old. Some have special needs, including learning disabilities, while others are waiting to be adopted with a number of siblings.
The adoption workshops are repeated on the third Thursday of the month. Call Kerri Keiffer at 585-546-7220 for details.
