Adoptive Parents' Connection Group
A support group for parents of children who joined the family through adoption after having been in foster care, after placement through private adoptions, through international adoption, or through kinship or stepparent relationships. Each group will include a time of discussion about a specific topic relevant to adoption, complex trauma, attachment, parenting, and other areas of interest to the group, as well as open, facilitated time for parents to share and connect with each other.
Meeting Dates [Advance registration is required (see below)]: For 2023, we are meeting on the fourth Tuesday the month, with the exception of December, when we'll meet on the third Tuesday. We meet from 10:00 am - 11:30 am at the Arbor Cove Therapy office in Roswell. Our 2023 dates are:
May - July: Break for summer
Cost: $20/monthly meeting (individual registration); $35/monthly meeting (couple registration for an individual registrant who would like to bring a spouse, partner, co-parent, regular caregiver, or extended family member).
To Register: This is an open group, but to give everyone ample opportunity to share, each session's registration is capped at a maximum of eight participants, so advance registration is required. If registration maxes out, we will start a waiting list and let you know if a spot becomes available. If you haven't attended this group before, contact us below first to schedule a brief phone call or meeting to make sure the group is the best fit for your needs and obtain registration forms. If you've attended group before, please call us at 404.394.1096, ext 1 to RSVP for the date you plan on attending.
We hope to see you soon!
