"Empowered to Connect" is a fantastic resource started by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Michael & Amy Monroe. Their purpose is to equip families with post adoption resources. They started a web site with all kinds of empowering resources, including a study guide that is designed to help illuminate the biblical principles that serve as the foundation for the philosophy and interventions detailed in Dr. Purvis' book called "The Connected Child".
Another resource is the "Empowered To Connect Conference" The next conference will be on September 23-24, 2011, in Nashville, TN.
