5Th Annual Pot Luck Dinner
Our annual Holiday Pary was enjoyed by all...thank you to all who could attend this fun event!
We had a terrific response to our January meeting! Join us this coming Saturday as our board members share their experiences and invite you to share your experiences and questions. Both pre and post adopt parents will benefit from "The Exchange." We are asking you to RSVP for this meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you'll be attending and what questions you might have.
This is a must attend meeting for both pre and post adopt parents! Barbara Freedgood is both an adoption professional and an adoptive parent. You can visit the adoption support page on her website to learn more about her along with watching videos to hear her speak. http://www.barbarafreedgood.com/adoption-support.htm The topic she will speak on is "Answering the Hard Questions." And you are invited - and encouraged - to send in your questions ahead of time to help Barbara plan her talk to be exactly what you want to hear about. Just email your questions to email@example.com and we will forward your questions to Barbara. See the flyer below for all the details.

There are limited lunch items, drinks, and snacks available at the farm market, or you can bring your own lunch with you! Activities include: a hayride to the orchard to pick apples, barnyard animals, and pony rides. Be sure to check their website for directions, full details, and a coupon. http://www.sunhigh.com

Thanks to Stefani and to all who attended and contributed to our discussion at our May 16th meeting.
It is a difficult topic for sure, but it was made easier by an excellent facilitator and a group of people committed to doing the best for their children - and all children.
May 16th is our final meeting of the year. Please join us for a thought-provoking discussion topic: Black & White: Transracial Parenting in a Racially Charged Society. This is a topic many of our members have been requesting and we were able to find excellent leaders to share their experiences and guide us through understanding this complex and sensitive subject. We encourage members from all chapters, both pre and post adopt, to join us. You can find all the details on the flyer below.
Our Day At the Farm was a great success! It was so nice to catch up with all the families who attended. It's amazing how much all our little ones grew during that long, cold winter! Many thanks to Maureen and Bob for designing the flyer and getting it out to our members, to Ron for taking care of the registrations, and especially to Laura for taking care of everything else connected with the day!
