Connected Moms Gathering

We are excited to get together the second Tuesday night of each month, in an Irving home, to encourage and support each other through this journey of foster care and adoption.

This group is open to all adoptive, foster, and waiting moms, who want to build deeper connections with their children, make new friends who understand this adoption and foster care journey, and be encouraged.

Community Gatherings

These unique gatherings connect adoptive and foster families to a local church who will wrap around and provide physical, emotional, and prayer support.

Community gatherings will offer teaching for both kids and adults, as well as crisis intervention for families.  They are a place of authentic community and learning for adoptive, foster, and kinship families at all stages of the parenting journey.

Community Gathering leaders are experienced adoptive parents who will facilitate a teaching time and lead the discussion so that families feel free to share with other like minded families.  Training certificates are available for those who need them.

Current locations:




Flower Mound coming soon!

Sherman coming soon!
