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 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:

Carrollton (Bent Tree Bible)

Hurst (First Baptist Hurst)

Plano (Grace Church)

Sherman (Victory Life Church)

E-Community (meets on Zoom)

Our groups are taking a break for June and July 2021. We will be having some fun activities planned in each area and look forward to connecting with you! Regular groups will resume in person August/September.

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. In person groups will begin again in the fall of 2021 in the DFW area.

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.
