In my experience finding support, resources and others in the community that understand the struggles and triumphs of adoption is KEY to navigating the ups and downs of being at adoptive parent.  The NEW 2010 Post Adoption Parent Network was created just for that purpose! Please consider signing up. It might be “just what the doctor ordered.” 😉

Come together and join fellow Minnetonka parents at the Post-Adoption Parent Network group starting Thursday February 4, 2010. Groups will be facilitated by Kara Priesmeyer, MA. Kara currently runs a private practice in Minnetonka, MN specializing in Post Adoption and Family Attachment Therapy. She has over three years of experience working directly with children, adolescents and their families in their post adoption journey. Encouraging identity exploration for your kids, discussing school and peer issues, and addressing birth family curiosities are just a few of the topics that will be covered for the group. Group participants will have many opportunities to share their own stories and increase their awareness of others in the community that are experiencing the same concerns and questions. Kara is an adoptee herself, born in Seoul, Korea and traveled back to Korea in 2005 to meet her birth family.

The Post-Adoption Parent Network will meet:

Thursday February 4, 2010 from 6:30-8:00pm

Thursday March 4, 2010 from 6:30-8:00pm

Thursday April 1, 2010 from 6:30-8:00pm

Cost: $15.00 per night per person or $20.00 per couple.
