I received an amazing email from my placement agency today. They are starting a phone support group for singles. I immediately responded to sign me up!
So what is a phone support group? It's new to me, too, but according to the email: "Although staff facilitate these groups, they are really run according to the needs of the participants. These sessions are designed to help prospective parents talk to each other, exchange ideas, figure out how to cope when the wait is hard and celebrate when they receive good news."
It's so great to know that even if in the minority, our agency cares about the unique demographic of single adoptive parents. They understand that "single parents have unique concerns and needs as they approach their adoption and that they want to connect with one another."
So beginning in September, you'll know where to find me on the third Wednesday of the month, between 7 and 8pm.
