    Come hang with other adoptive parents, share food, laughter and experiences while your adopted teens have their own space!
    Oooof… We know what you’re going through!
    Teen years are tough, and our adopted teens add a multi-layered complexity that makes things even tougher. These are the years where they begin defining themselves, and at times without your supervision. Scary, we know, but they never stop being your children and deserving of our attention!
    Please join us at this monthly gathering for parents of teenage adoptees, where you can find other adoptive parents with teens and offer support, discuss experiences, and share current information relevant to adoption, trauma and families.

    Your teens are invited to come.

    While parents gather, there will be a separate meeting for teens facilitated by adult adoptees.  A range of fun artistic activities will be introduced to the teens at each session which include art-making, dance, and more! Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Come share and learn with us!
