You are invited to our very first BraveLove 101...
Maybe you know bits and pieces about BraveLove. Or follow us on social media. Or perhaps you've seen a video or two, and you'd love a little deeper dive into why we do what we do.
This is for you. Join us for 30 minutes over Zoom on Thursday, April 8th. Grab a cup of coffee or take the call from your car or office. We'll introduce you to some of the team and give you insight into the mission and work of BraveLove. No frills! No strings attached! Just a chance to learn a little more.
Who: You! Feel free to invite someone else from your household or share this with a friend that might be interested in BraveLove.
Note: Most of those who have been invited to this specific call are either adoptive parents or prospective adoptive parents. (It's not a requirement to be an adoptive parent to be on this call though.)

Can I invite others to BraveLove 101?
You are welcome to invite others that might be interested in BraveLove. Most of those who have been invited to this specific Zoom call are either adoptive parents or prospective adoptive parents. But hear us out — it is *not* a requirement to be an adoptive parent to be on this call.
How do I invite others?
Instead of just sharing your Zoom link, please share this page link (https://www.bravelove.org/101_april2021) so that your friend(s) will register. This gives us a better idea of how many to expect.
Will I have to talk or participate on this Zoom call? Or will I need my video to be on?
No and no. You can call in, mute yourself, turn your video off, and listen. Though we'd really love to see your face! We'll take a quick poll at the beginning and then we'll open it up to questions at the end (if any).
What if I have specific questions about BraveLove that I want answered on the call?
We will take questions at the very end (after the 30-minute program). If you have specific questions now that you'd like answered, send us your questions in advance by emailing [email protected], and we'll do our best to address them either on the call or directly with you. If you have questions during the Zoom call, you can write them in the Chat box, and we'll answer them at the end.
What if I register and miss the Zoom call?
It happens! We'll follow up with you afterward and share some highlights.
Is it okay if I'm a few minutes late?
What if I really want to join but am unavailable April 8th. Will there be more BraveLove 101's?
You can join us for the next one! The exact date is TBD but sometime next month. So stay tuned!
I registered online but didn't receive the Zoom link.
