In my opinion, one of the hardest things about being an adoptive parent is finding an adoption community to be a part of. Living in NYC, it was pretty hard for me to believe that an organized, public group of this kind did not exist…..
Until now. Helpusadopt.org has created a FREE NYC Adoption Community Meet Up. The goal is for people with shared experiences to meet one another, exchange stories, and build a sense of community. Children will meet other children who have been adopted, and adults will meet like minded people who can serve as ongoing sources of support and guidance. In the true spirit of inclusiveness that defines Helpusadopt.org, all people touched by adoption are welcome to attend including adoptive families, adoptees, birth parents, and families in the process of adoption. We hosted our first one last fall with our generous partner The Muse Hotel and we hope that you will join us on January 11th for our next event. My hope is that you will also share this information with others via email, on Facebook, Twitter or Linked in.
Here are all the details and RSVP info—we hope to see you there!
Love much, Xob
