The Connected Child, co-authored by Dr. Karyn Purvis, has become one of the most helpful and encouraging books for adoptive and foster parents in helping them understand how to compassionately and effectively deal with the challenges that they and their children face. In 2010, Michael and I, together with Dr. Purvis, wrote Created To Connect: A Christian’s Guide to The Connected Child. The study guide serves as a companion to The Connected Child, following it chapter-by-chapter and highlighting the biblical foundation that supports the principles and strategies that are explained in the book.
This summer, I will host a six-week discussion group for adoptive and foster moms (and moms-to-be) to talk our way through the Created To Connect Study Guide. This group will meet on Tuesday evenings, starting June 12th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, in West C & D at Irving Bible Church. Free childcare for ages birth through 5th grade is available with advanced registration. Training certificates will also be available.
The only cost to participate is the cost to purchase The Connected Child (which is available on Amazon.com for around $12). The Created To Connect Study Guide is available free online, or printed and bound copies can be purchased at the first meeting for $7.95 each.
All adoptive and foster moms and moms-to-be are invited participate in this discussion group, which is sure to be helpful and encouraging to all women who are on the adoption or foster care journey. I hope you will make plans to attend all six sessions.
If you plan to participate in this discussion group, please let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. But hurry, space is limited.
