Wednesday 3rd to Friday 5th September 2008 - conference

The 9th Australian Adoption Conference �Connecting Past, Securing Future� will be held from 2 to 5 September 2008 at the Stamford Hotel, Double Bay, Sydney.

The theme for the conference was inspired by a quote from Hundertwasser who said: �If we do not honour our past, we lose our future. If we destroy our roots, we cannot grow.� It was felt that that for each adoption journey, by acknowledging the past, we are able to make sense of and secure the future.

The organising committee is very excited about this up and coming conference and we believe it will be dynamic, memorable and challenging for all participants. To date, we have received an enthusiastic response from around the globe, and from previous conferences we believe we will attract approximately 400 delegates across the three days.
