FOR CALIFORNIA FAMILIES: Navigating Birth/Adoptive Family Relationships Parent Support Group

Register Today

Are you an Adoptive or Foster Family living in California?

Register now for the Navigating Birth/Adoptive Family Relationships Parent Support Group! Research has confirmed what professionals have believed – that birth parents are nearly always psychologically present in adoptive families, even in instances where the children have been removed from their parent’s care due to allegations of abuse or neglect. This 5-week webinar/parent support group will explore the importance of birth parents/families in the lives of adopted children/youth, how to share and talk about difficult information, and how to create positive, honoring relationships with the birth family whether there is contact or not.

Navigating Birth/Adoptive Family Relationships Parent Support Group will meet via Zoom on Thursday (May 26th, June 2nd, June 9th, June 16th, June 23rd, June 30th) from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm PST.
