Adoption


The word alone seems full of questions. The process is unknown to most who haven't been through it, as are the rewards.

Concerned Persons For Adoption (CPFA) is a non-profit organization in the State of New Jersey dedicated to the belief that every child deserves a family. CPFA is not an adoption agency, but a volunteer organization working to support those who wish to adopt, and to provide educational and networking resources to those who have adopted.

Concerned Persons for Adoption (CPFA) will hold its free Book Group discussion on Thursday, January 26, 2023 from 7:30-9:00 pm at the Chatham Summit Quaker Meeting, 158 Southern Boulevard, Chatham, NJ 07928, or on Zoom.
Join us for a lively and thought-provoking discussion on the book Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan.  
 
 
 
 It is 1985 in a small Irish town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal merchant and family man faces his busiest season. Early one morning, while delivering an order to the local convent, Bill makes a discovery that forces him to confront both his past and the complicit silences of a town controlled by the church.

Already an international bestseller, Small Things Like These is a deeply affecting story of hope, quiet heroism, and empathy from one of our most critically lauded and iconic writers. (goodreads.com)
