About the Event
Join other adoptive parents for this newly launched connection group. The group will begin with family dinner from 6 to 6:30 pm. Food will be provided.
Children will then joined background-checked volunteers to play separate from adults from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
From 6:30 to 7:30 pm, adoptive parents will watch a video on a foundational topic in adoption and will discuss the videos content as it relates to their families and experiences with adoption. Each video will be written and recorded by by Erin Nasmyth, Adoption Support Alliance's co-founder & executive director. Topics will include grief & loss, talking about adoption, openness in adoption and parenting in adoption. This group will be facilitated by volunteer & adoptive parent, Rebecca Cook.
We are hopeful that groups following this same format will be formed in pockets throughout Charlotte. At the conclusion of this group, group participants will have the option of facilitating a new group or to continue to meet with other willing participants in a capacity that works for all interested parties. Our goal at the end of this Connect & Belong group is that all family members will connect with others with the experience of adoption, form relationships with one another and have space to consider and express how adoption impacts your family.
