Supporting Kids Who Come From Hard Beginnings
The Waiting Game
Being in the waiting game when it comes to international adoption is incredibly challenging emotionally and from many other standpoints as well.
Join with others to find listening ears, community and support.
Who This Is For
Parents who are waiting... on some kind of approval, a referral or match, courts or other logistical acrobatics that take SO MUCH time.
Parents who are feeling lonely and misunderstood in the wait and want to be with others who understand.
Parents who are craving a realtime support group but who have limits on ability to attend groups in person.
How This Will Help You
You will finally have a space where you can come and safely share with others in a controlled and confidential environment.
You get to hear how others are managing the stress.
Talk about logistics and planning and how to best prepare for the changes coming to your family.
Help you cope with unknowns.
Six Wednesdays @ 10:00 am or 7:00 pm Mountain Time
2/6/2019 - 3/6/2019
Online! We have our own online home where we can be together real time. It is ideal because you do not need to leave the house and if things get real (and you know they will) and you need to meet the needs of your child or yourself, you can easily pause the audio and video and come back to us when you are able.
Each week, I will act as host and facilitator. I will also send out quick videos or posts that will act as possible catalysts for our discussions.
This will operate much like any other support group where all members will be asked to comply with confidentiality agreements and all matters discussed will remain private.
We will also have a private Facebook group just for those who attend the group meetings. This will serve as a way to communicate outside of the planned meeting times and support each other all week long.
Click below to let me know you are interested in joining us. You will share some basic information with me and then I will then send you info and get the ball rolling for you to join our community!
I am still figuring out the out the best way for me to serve others on this journey. I am currently looking at turning this into a non-profit so that the financial burden is not on families who are already stretched thin by the adoption process.
Because this aspect is a work in progress, I will not be charging my regular fees. Should you wish to make a (non tax exempt yet) donation, we can certainly make that happen.
