Teen Adoptee SG: Share Your Story, Your Way

The Share Your Story, Your Way support group is primarily designed to create a safe & supportive environment for you, a teen adoptee (ages13 to17) to engage with your story alongside fellow adoptees. The group will follow the Teen Adoptee Support Group: Share Your Story, Your Way curriculum which includes personal adoption stories from C.A.S.E.'s (Center for Adoption Support and Education) book, Beneath the Mask: For Teen Adoptees.

During this 8-week group, teens will:

  • Explore the 7 Core Issues of Adoption

  • Learn better ways to respond to adoption-related questions and comments

  • Have an opportunity to process your personal adoption journey and share your story, your way

  • Hear and learn from other teen adoptees in a supportive and collaborative way

We all share the reality of adoption being a life-long journey, so let’s walk the journey together. Comfortability with reading and sharing in front of the group is highly encouraged but not mandatory.

*Participants do not need this book to attend.

Pre-Teen Adoptee SG: Own Your Story, That's Only Yours

The Own Your Story, That's Only Yours support group is a beginner group for pre-teens (ages 10 to13) to explore your adoption as being a personal story to you. The group will start with the basics of what adoption is and what a story is. It will move towards collaborative discussions and activities to address various feelings that can be a part of your story and how your story isn't finished yet! This group will be a beginning step for you to own your story that's yours, and only yours.

During this 8-week group, pre-teens will:

  • Explore your adoption as a story

  • Discuss the various feelings that come up in your adoption story

  • Explore your adoption as a life-long story that's yours, and only yours

  • Meet and hear from fellow pre-teen adoptees from all over

 

We all share the reality of adoption being a life-long journey, so let’s walk the journey together. Looking forward to having you join us.
