Adoptee Support Groups
Saturday, September 8, 2018
An event every month that begins at 9:00am on day Second of the month, repeating until Saturday, April 13, 2019
Registration is now closed for our adoptee support groups
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 8, October 13, November 10, December 8, January 12, February 9, March 9, and April 13.
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.
The groups meet at the following times:
Gumdrop Group | ages 1-4 | 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Lollipop Group | Ages 5-8 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Bubblegum Group | ages 9-13 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 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.
