Testimonial from parents' workshop: 

"Thanks for a great night.  You are terrific and the mothers loved  you. They all wrote about the talk afterwards."
Groups for Adopted Youth and Teens:
The "ME" Project

Adopted youth benefit from:having a space to explore with their peers what adoption means to them and how to blend adoption into their daily lives.  “The Me Project” offers adoptees
  •  a forum to express thoughts and feelings. 
  • learn that questions about being adopted and birth family are normal.
  •  'try on' aspects of their identities that they may be inhibited to share with their parents.
