As many of you already know, I have recently become quite ill. As a result, I was admitted to the hospital on July 24 and had to undergo an emergency major surgery to combat a stomach infection. I was released from the hospital yesterday and then admitted to a nursing/rehabilitation home to receive further medical care while I recover. As I write this, I am at my home with my parents for an hour visit. I think that the Group has been left in good hands with Ally. I want to thank the Group for the care package that I received while in the hospital. I truly miss you all and look forward to when I can see you all very soon. I can read your emails but do not have the ability to respond to them. I welcome your emails and phone calls (920) 382-8725. If I don't answer, I'm probably in rehab or some appointment, but I will return your calls as I am able. I wish you all well and encourage your continued support and involvement. I'll see you all soon! Your Organizer -D.J.-
The Single Parents-Divorced Adults Meetup group is a social networking group focused on helping people - many of whom are going through a significant and difficult transition in their lives - get out, make new friends and have FUN.
We are a diverse group of single parents and non-parents, some recently separated and/or going through a divorce, some already divorced for various lengths of time, and some who never were married. A small handful of longer-term members are now remarried. :)
However, please note: THIS IS NOT A "SINGLES" OR "DATING GROUP" and we strongly discourage individuals from joining for the purposes of dating or trying to establish a romantic relationship with other members. There are other Meetup groups and online services available for that purpose.
As many of us know all too well, going through a divorce and/or living as a single parent can result in feelings of grief, anger, loneliness and isolation. The goal of this group is to create a comfortable, caring and safe network of friendship and support where members can connect with others in similar situations, share feelings and learn from each other’s experiences.
The group is open to members both with and without children, and we try to offer a variety of both adults-only and kid-friendly activities. (NOTE: “Kid-friendly” does not mean that only those with kids can attend, or that it is an activity that only kids would enjoy. It simply indicates an activity or event where children are welcome.)
Monthly meetings, outings and activities are designed to provide a fun social outlet and promote friendships. Group events provide an opportunity to speak with others who are facing similar challenges or who can relate to what you might be going through because they've been through it themselves.
If you are new to Meetup, attending an event for the first time can feel very daunting. But our members are very welcoming and friendly. So just do it! We are confident you will be glad you did.
And if you have any ideas for group activities, feel free to make suggestions or take the plunge and host a Meetup yourself. It's very easy! If this is of interest, but you need help getting started please contact a group organizer.
