Adoptive and Foster Parent Group

These are gatherings for parents experiencing the joys and challenges of foster, adoptive and kinship parenting. We focus on a variety of topics including parenting, adoption & foster care and personal growth. As we share stories, encouragement and practical training, our desire is that parents leave feeling more equipped and encouraged as they lead their families. Childcare is available in Kids’ Club for infants through 5th graders, with one week advance registration.

Resources

Video Teaching: Crossroads did a series, Powerhouse, on family. One week was specifically about parenting. Many of the ideas shared were from some of our favorites, Beth Guckenberger, Karyn Purvis and Jayne Schooler. While many of the strategies were developed to help us better respond to and connect with vulnerable kids, these methods are great parenting methods for ALL families. You can check out the service with Chuck Mingo and Kim Botto HERE.

Parenting Articles: HERE is a great article written by Vicki Diller, Parenting: What’s the End Goal? HERE is a full list of articles, many on family and parenting, written by those in our community. Lots of great insight.
