We kick off our 2015 calendar tonight Sunday, January 18, 2015 with Fostering Hope, our support group for foster families and those considering foster care. We have a busy year planned and have posted events through March which can be viewed on the events page on our website. We hope that you will join us for as many events as you can. All of the events will have topics and training certificates will be available for those who need them.
You can read more details regarding our January events below.
Fostering Hope is Tapestry’s support group for those involved in foster care. This group is open to anyone touched by foster care, including those who are fostering, fostering-to-adopt or are considering foster care or foster care adoption.
We will meet the third Sunday of every month at 5:00 pm at Irving Bible Church in The Commons Annex. Children ages birth through 5th grade can participate in the Sunday evening children’s programs during this time. The topic for January is “Why Building a Foundation of Connection is Important in Foster Care.”
Tapestry Conference Series (On Demand)
Join us as we replay sessions from previous Tapestry conferences. Each session will be one hour in length and training certificates are available to those who need them. The videos will be accessible for 12 hours. You can start viewing at noon on Saturday, January 24 and the video will be available until midnight. This month’s video is “Do I Have to Tell my Child That?” presented by Michael & Amy Monroe at the 2013 conference. You can get the link and password on the event specific page on our website.
Mom’s Night Out
Let us buy you coffee and something sweet to eat. Join other adoptive & foster moms for coffee, dessert, and fellowship at La Madeleine in Grapevine from 7:00-9:00 pm on Tuesday, January 27. We will discuss the privilege we have being the guardians of our kid’s stories. We need to remember that we have two responsibilities; protecting their story and sharing it with them. Join other moms as they share how they have walked this line over the years.
