DID YOU KNOW there are 6 - 7 Million Adult Adoptees in America and the suicide risk is 4x greater among adoptees? (Phew! We should talk!) "The Adoptee Heart" is a Connection Point for Adult Adoptees. We offer resources, references and support and step out of the typical social box by recognizing the truth: Many adoptees are walking with wounds. (The quadrupled risk of suicide among adoptees should tell the world this fact.) Sometimes, just connecting with other adoptees is all we want. Sometimes, we want and need more. At "The Adoptee Heart" we get it and we want to help. Our Facilitator Team is composed of 2 couples. Both are adoptees-in-reunion and their spouses. One reason we believe in miracles is because our reunions took place in a sealed-record state where this isn't supposed to be possible. But maybe reunion isn't your heart. That's okay because what we're mostly about is connection and healing. We recognize these come in different ways for different people and while we do believe a relationship with Christ brings healing, and we will share briefly from the Bible in our meetings, we won't cram God down anyone's throat. At "The Adoptee Heart" ALL will be given every bit as much resource help as we can give. That's a promise. Come to Hampton and join us whether you're searching for biological roots, sorting through difficult thoughts and emotions, questioning identity, needing a little encouragement or maybe just wanting a few ears that will hear and understand where you're coming from as an adult adoptee. Many of our resources will come from "Adoptee Restoration", founded by Deanna Shrodes. "Adoptee Restoration" is based out of Florida and serves as an adoptee connection point for adoptees of all races and creeds, worldwide. We will also pull from several other resources. We think you'll enjoy your time with us. We really, really like to laugh and we aren't offended by 'adoptee anger' or tears. Light Snacks provided. Launch Date: Tues, May 31, 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm ~Northampton Branch Library Meeting Room ~ 936 Big Bethel Road, Hampton, VA
