Space will also be provided for participants to explore and share experiences around international adoption, foster care, transracial adoption, search and reunion.

 

The group, led by Katie Wynen, will meet monthly on the 1st Tuesday of the month. The group will meet at the Pact office, and participants must be over 21. Inquiries can be made to Katie Wynen (katie@pactadopt.org)
