Need to talk to other adoptive parents who REALLY GET IT when it comes to your children?
Wish you had a safe place in which you could swap stories, learn helpful techniques and grow together?

Join a parent support group! At $5.50 a group, it’s completely affordable (yes, that’s just under what a Starbucks latte costs!), you can join a participant-led group online via video-conferencing, from anywhere in the nation. Video-conferencing means you will receive a link that allows you to join from anywhere -your office- your house- your smartphone, and you will be able to see up to 4 others on your screen.

What can I expect in the support groups?
The groups are participant-run (these are not therapy groups); however, I will be joining you for a portion of the first and last group in order to set up the structure, provide recommendations and finally bring the group to a close. The first 25 minutes will be a time to share “highs and lows” of the week, while the second portion will be used to discuss a book or resource relevant to your stage in parenting. Of course, any group or individual can certainly sign up for another 6 weeks if you’ve made good connections and would like to continue.
