CARMEL ATTORNEY TRAVELING TO AFRICA TO DEVELOP INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION PROGRAM

CARMEL, IN – September 2, 2009 – Michele L. Jackson, who chairs the Adoption Practice Group of Carmel law firm JOCHAM HARDEN DIMICK JACKSON, PC, will be traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire, commonly referred to as the “DRC”) in Africa from September 25 – October 2, 2009. Along with members of the staff of MLJ Adoptions, she will be visiting with central authorities as part of her ongoing plan to develop an international adoption program beginning January 2010. Research on the new program began in January of 2009 and Ms. Jackson recently met with a Congolese attorney based in Chicago, who divides her residency between the Midwest and the DRC. The attorney will be working with Ms. Jackson and MLJ Adoptions to provide the necessary in-country representation and resources. Whenever starting a new international program, it is imperative to travel to the country to forge relationships and identify reputable agencies, authorities and contacts. It also gives Ms. Jackson an opportunity to visit orphanages and see conditions and resources first hand. While in Africa, she will also be delivering relief supplies to area orphanages as part of her nonprofit charity, The Fatherless Foundation.

JHDJ Law’s Adoption Practice Group offers domestic and international adoption services including private infant adoptions, step-parent adoptions, second parent (same sex) adoptions, and various international family law services, including contract reviews and orphan visa appeals. Ms. Jackson represents both birth and adoptive parents, and provides resources and adoption education.
