Online support

Our online support groups give parents a place to connect through Facebook. Some groups tackle issues in adoptive parenting, while others have a geographical focus or connect specific types of families. All groups offer the opportunity to share experiences, socialize, and build friendships.

All of our groups are closed and facilitated by one or more adoption support coordinators. This ensures that the group stays focused and that confidentiality is respected by all.

To join any of our groups, please click on the group name in the list below to complete our confidentiality waiver, then click the "join group" button on the Facebook group page. Click on the group facilitator name if you want to contact them.  New members will be contacted by the facilitator prior to admission to the group. On Facebook, please check your "message requests" and "filtered messages" private message folders if you've asked to join a group and are waiting for approval!
