Conference “All grown-ups were once children”

On June 2nd 2013, in Timisoara, 70 parents and 20 adopted children attended the event dedicated to adoptive families and to those who support the principle of adoption:

"All grown-ups were once children"

The guests present at the conference organized by the Ador Copiii Association were the President of the Romanian Office for Adoptions, Bogdan Panait, PhD Ana Muntean, representatives of the Directorates for Social Assistance and Child Protection from Timis County, CEO Emilia Milutionovici, Aurelia Anciu, representatives of the adoption services from Alba and Timis Counties.

At the conference we talked about the need to respect the terms in which children can be declared adoptable, about respecting the certified family’s rights to know the stage in which the adoption procedure is, the need for assistance from the accredited private organizations, the collaboration between social assistance departments and the Accredited private organizations and the establishment of the Federation of Non-Governmental Organizations for Adoptions.

Several Trophies for Excellence were awarded - Adoption Ambassadors – to ladies Paula Herlo (ProTv), Carmen Avram (Antena 3), Aurelia Alexa (Mediafax), Adriana Dolcianu Mărăscu (Radio Romania Timişoara), media journalists, for their involvement, attitude, professionalism in presenting problems within the system of social protection and adoptions. Furthermore, many adoptive families who have constantly advocated for adoptions and took visible actions in the problems our organization reported about the system have also been recognized as “Adoption Ambassadors”.

Briana Cigan, winner of the competitions Young Artists and Musical Harmonies, held an impressive artistic moment. On the tunes she played she reproduced the childhood joy, the joy of completing adoptive families.

Through the generosity of Cardinal Travel Agency, two families participating in the event were selected to go on a trip to Greece, Cardinal sponsoring the transport and accommodation for two adults and two children for 10 day, in the time period the family chooses.

Artizam Film created four special videos to promote adoption, videos which will be used from now on in our Association’s actions of promoting adoption.

The event took place in an elegant location, made available by Resort Senator and the presentation was provided by Manuela Strinu - DiGi24, a fine connoisseur of the adoption phenomenon in Romania.
