Family Support Gatherings

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We all need someone to lean on. That is especially true for those who foster, have adopted, or who are waiting. Join other like-minded parents for a time of connection and sharing. Don’t see a group in your area? Email [email protected] and we’ll help you get one started.

These unique gatherings connect adoptive and foster families to a local church who will wrap around and provide physical, emotional, and prayer support. You do not have to be a member of a church to join. All are welcome.

Community gatherings offer teaching for parents, as well as help in times of crisis.  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 teaching and discussion so that families feel free to share with other like minded families.  Training certificates are available for those who need them.

During the school year we meet together on the 2nd Tuesday of each month on Zoom 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.

Are you parenting a teen and looking for other moms who get it? Whether you adopted a child who is now a teen or you are fostering/adopting a teenager. This group is for you.

Join us on the 4th Thursday of each month at La Madeleine in Flower Mound.

This group is open to all adoptive, foster, and waiting moms, who want to build deeper connections with their teens, hear from other moms who have walked through similar challenges, and learn how to advocate for and empower our kids to walk through the messy and the hard.
