Event description
Building Your Family Through Adoption

About this Event

Have you ever thought about adopting kids and wondered what the experience is like? Or, how you might build a family with both adopted and biological children?

If these questions are on your mind, join us for this conversation with Gigi and John Orta. Gigi is an Executive Director at J.P. Morgan and John is the Head of Legal at Nextdoor. They had two biological children first, and as the kids became preteens, their family made the decision to adopt internationally.

Now, eight years later, they’re excited to share their experience building their family. They'll talk about how they made the decision to adopt, navigated an international adoption, and built a wonderful family with both adopted and biological children.

Enjoy their story with us at this Grand Session and explore how you can build your own family through adoption.

What is a Grand Session?

A safe space where you can have an honest conversation around a specific life question with a small group of peers who are in the same unique position and with a Grand Guide who's been there before.

What can I expect?

The Grand Guides will share their personal story to spark the conversation on the topic. They will then lead a facilitated conversation so everyone has a chance to join in the discussion. Snacks and beverages will be served.

What's the timeline?

6:30 - 6:45 – Arrivals

6:45 - 7:00 – Introductions

7:00 - 7:10 – Grand Guides' Journey

Thank you for joining us for this meaningful conversation. We're looking forward to learning together and will be sending more details about your Grand Guides and session in the coming days. Please feel free to get in touch with us directly if you have any questions in the meantime at anita@thegrand.world.
