RAINBOW FAMILIES' ADOPTION SUPPORT GROUP
Fall / Winter 2020
Rainbow Families is pleased to offer our recurring support group for prospective LGBTQ+ parents going through the adoption process. Participants should be about to start their home study, on up to waiting for your child...and all steps in-between.
Dates: Sept 26, Oct 24, Nov 21, December 19
The group is facilitated by an expert in the field of therapy, family counseling, mental health, youth, and families. She has a Masters degree and will soon complete her Doctorate.
Those who have never attended this support group will have registration priority, to help new people participate in this valuable resource. We ask that registrants attend all sessions to receive the most benefit from this support group.
Space is limited to help maintain a sense of privacy, intimacy and safety to interact.
Meetings are free of charge to Rainbow Families members. Non-members are $20 per person (about $7 per session per person). No refunds. Dates/times may be subject to change; any changes will be communicated immediately.
For the trans community, considering building a family through fertility can be truly unique, if not daunting. It's vital to have a safe, affirming space to learn and to ask questions.
Please join Dr. Carter Owen for an informative discussion about fertility, with topics specifically for the trans community.
Arming yourself with accurate information can help you make well-informed decisions as you embark on your journey to become a parent.
There is no charge, however a small donation to Rainbow Families is appreciated
Link for the meeting will be sent prior
