What we're doing:


Our Parents of Adopted Teens Support group (PATS) is a way to connect with other parents of teens and pre-teens, and experienced therapists, to celebrate the successes and address the challenges of parenting through adolescence.

COVID-19 update

We had an informal, socially distanced picnic on September 12 and met up for pumpkin patch fun at Craven Farm in October. However, we are holding off on scheduling any more in-person events for now.
