Dillon International wants to be the lifetime adoption resource for families and adoptees.
Many adoptees attend our heritage camps, but we have seen a need for more personalized groups for kids in the 8- to 12-year-old range.
That is why we have started offering Pre-Teen Groups. These groups discuss bullying, culture, loss and grief, the reasons why birth families may have made an adoption plan, and how to handle difficult or insensitive questions at school.
Most of all, these groups are meant to be fun and a safe, welcoming environment for pre-teens who are discovering their individuality. Each group will be lead by an adoption professional, with the right experience to handle each group’s needs.
All adoptees between 8 and 12 are welcome, including international adoptees adopted through other agencies, and domestic adoptees, either adopted through a private or through the foster care system.
We have found that no matter where adoptees were born, they may have similar stories to share.
We hope you’ll allow your adolescent to join us for these life-changing groups.
