Crossroads of America Adoption Conference to Be Held at Exciting New Location
By: Sheri Molnar
The 2012 Crossroads of America Adoption Conference will be held at the newly renovated home of sponsor, MLJ Adoptions, in downtown Indianapolis. The building, referred to as the Arch at Chatham, is located at 617 E. North Street. It is an exciting new venue located just one block from the thriving Mass Ave district.
The building was originally built as a Catholic Boys’ School in the late 1800’s and has had many owners and uses through the years. The building had been abandoned for the past seven years. Weeds were stretching to the second floor cracked windows. Paint was peeling off the rotted wood of the small cottage.
MLJ Adoptions Executive Director, Michele Jackson and her husband initiated an extensive renovation inside and out. The building was lovingly transformed from a dilapidated eyesore to a beautiful showpiece. Original beams and woodwork were salvaged to use inside the building. Leftover wood was used to construct furniture and picture frames.
The building houses MLJ Adoptions, the Fatherless Foundation and Jackson’s Auctions. It can also be rented out for corporate, social, and charitable events. Onsite and street parking are available. Childcare will be located in the small house next door to the main building.
The Arch at Chatham will provide conference attendees with a beautiful backdrop for learning about adoption topics and meeting other like-minded individuals. The Crossroads of America Adoption Conference takes place September 15, 2012. It will feature Heidi Weimer and Aaron Eske as keynote speakers.
