Four kids of different races smile in a group.

Registration for this series is now closed

In our adoptee support groups, we engage in age-appropriate discussions about diversity and culture, school issues, adoption and birth families. Each group is open to adopted children and their families, regardless of placing agency.

Upcoming Series Information

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—although the Lollipop and Bubblegum groups meet separately, the parents from these sessions will meet in one large group.

Dates and themes of support groups in this series will be: 

January 28 | Introductions

February 11 | Development

February 25 | School

March 11 | Birth Parents

March 25 | Race and Culture

April 8 | Closing

Times of support groups in this series:

Gumdrop Group | ages 1-4 | 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Lollipop Group | Ages 5-9 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. FULL

Bubblegum Group | ages 10-14 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. FULL

The Lollipop and Bubblegum groups are no longer accepting new registrations.

Cost

The series is $150/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.
