A support group for adoptees ages 5-13
*Note, that due to COVID-19 we are vetting online options and will not be holding in-person support groups. Additional details to follow.
In our adoptee support groups, we engage in age-appropriate discussions about diversity and culture, friendship, race, school issues, adoption and birth families. Each group is open to adopted children and their families, regardless of placing agency.
This series will take place on the second Saturday of each month for eight months. The dates of this series are: September 14, October 12, November 9, December 14, January 11, February 8, March 14, and April 18 (3rd week due to Easter).
The groups are broken into different sessions by age, within each session children may be divided into smaller groups based on their age. While the children meet, a corresponding parent session takes place for parents to listen and learn from each other.
The groups meet at the following times:
Lollipop Group | Ages 5-8 | New time! 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Bubblegum Group | ages 9-13 | New time! 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The series is $200/child and includes the cost of the corresponding parent session that meets at the same time as each adoptee support group. Families can register additional children for support groups at a discounted rate of $25/child. If you register for the group sessions via one of the dates listed in our online calendar, you will be registered for every date listed.
*Unfortunately, we are unable to provide childcare for younger/older siblings during the group times. We ask that only children who are registered for the group attend along with their parent(s). Thank you for your understanding.
