Alternative Paths to Parenthood

November 10, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST

Alternative Paths to Parenthood adoption webinar

Are you struggling with infertility or family planning?

Perhaps you are still coping with a miscarriage or other loss.

Or, maybe you’re ready to adopt but don’t fully understand what the process looks like in a post-covid world.

Whatever brought you to this moment, one thing is for sure …

… You are ready to experience life as a parent.

To have a family, share your life with a child (or children), see the world through their eyes, and help shape the future.

Whether you are married, in a relationship, or going at it alone, you are ready to start a family.

Yet, you’re not quite sure how to move forward.

With so many options, regulations, and hoops to jump through, the world of adoption can be paralyzing.

Then, there are all the other questions you have about alternative methods to starting a family.

It also might feel like the clock is ticking.

The longer it takes to adopt a baby, the older you become. That could result in less energy as a parent or being less desirable to adoption agencies.

Yet, your desire is strong.

You are ready to become a parent in the next year or two.

All that’s standing in your way is an understanding of what to do next.

Does that sound like you?

Then join on Thursday, November 10 @ 7pm CST for us next week for our free monthly Focus on Wellness Webinar.

Alternative Paths to Parenthood will help you:

  • Learn all the different options for becoming a parent.
  • Understand the key decisions along the way.
  • Find the best and fastest path to becoming a parent.
  • Facing your losses (miscarriage, infertility, etc).
  • Discover exactly what the adoption process looks like today.
  • Debunk common misconceptions about adoption.

*** If you already are parenting an adopted child and have questions, there will be a space for that as well.


About The Presenter:
Christi Megow • Adoption Consultant

Christi Megow received her B.S. in Business Administration at Washington and Lee University and her Masters in Business Administration from Rice University. After marriage and several years of infertility treatments, Christi and her husband pursued adoption with the help of Kathie, which resulted in the joyful placement of their daughter in their home. Since then, Christi has been an avid supporter of adoption and post-placement support as exemplified by being a founding member of Adoptive Families of Houston and serving on the board since its inception in 2011, serving as technology chair, secretary, programs chair and soon to be the President for 2021-22.

Christi worked in the energy industry in Houston for ten years, primarily at Dynegy and Reliant Energy. She also served in nonprofit rolls as National Director and of National Association of Women MBAs, President of Houston Women of Vision (an affiliate of World Vision) and others. She stepped back from corporate life and focused on being a mom when her daughter joined the family. Later she began serving non-profits again, this time as PTO President at her children’s elementary school and on the board of Adoptive Families of Houston, as noted above.

Additionally, Christi has a photography and album making business focused on families called www.ChristisCreations.com. She is excited to partner with Kathie and bring her business skills, creativity, passion and enthusiasm to other people seeking to grow their families by adoption.
