Being a parent is probably the most challenging and all-encompassing commitment in your life. Add adoption to the mix and things get a bit more complex. This group is for singles and couples, before during and after the adoption process. Learn, laugh, and socialize without worrying someone will say something insensitive about adoption or your family. Find out how others have handled "sticky" situations and found support in their communities. Join others who "walk the walk" and "talk the talk" as you share the daily joys and challenges of parenting through adoption. Group is led by Ametz Adoption Program/JCCA social worker Marci Schwartz-Ruff, MSW and meets monthly. Adults and children are welcome. Childcare is also available. $15/adult, $10/child, per session. Please register by calling 212-558-9949. This program is open to the public and was made possible thanks to the New York Community Trust.
