What we're about

This Meetup group is for adoptive parents, foster parents, and prospective adoptive & foster parents. Thiis is desinged with the traditional AKA model of peer-to-peer support, but in a more relaxed, informal setting. Parenting is hard. Parenting through foster care and adoption presents additional, unique challenges and opportuities for growth. Come feel supported by, and offer support to others parenting through foster care and adoption.

*AKA is a proponant of ethical and open adoption practices, empowering all three sides of the adoption triad before, during, and after the adoption process. We recognize that adoption is not a one time event, but a lifelong journey. We also support adult adoptees in their right to full access to their identity information.
