At first, the idea of participating in a therapeutic support group may sound intimidating, but many parents are surprised by the positive, helpful experience. When a family faces challenges, parents can be confused and feel alone. Adoptive parent groups fill the gaps for those looking for resources, support and a safe place to talk. Experiences are normalized and feelings of distress decrease.
This free group meets to offer supportive listening and education on parenting children who joined their family by adoption. All are welcome to attend, both before or after your child arrives home. Each meeting begins with an education segment and guided discussion. The education will focus on understanding how adoption may affect your family throughout everyone’s lives, and the life stages/events when adoption issues are most likely to resurface.
This is a safe place to share your challenges and successes. The meetings are led by professional counselors and follow group guidelines. Privacy and confidentiality of group members are respected.
Come meet with a group of people who care about how you and your children are doing.
