I started a Mom’s Night Out in our area that has been hugely successful.
We published our tips here http://www.graftedfamilies.com/index.php/resources/for-ministries/.

Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

TiffH—Sounds like you already have a good idea about the group you’d like to start. And, speaking as an adoptee, you’ll definitely be doing a service to all the kids whose families join the group—knowing other adoptees and adoptive families while growing up is really important! AF published an article with tips for starting a support group. You can read it here: http://www.adoptivefamilies.com/articles.php?aid=451. You might also want to check out this article on starting a heritage playgroup: http://www.adoptivefamilies.com/articles.php?aid=1553. Good luck, and let us know how your group goes after the first meeting!

I’d like to start an Adoption group in our area, possibly start with a picnic then grow from there. I think it would be nice to know others that are interested or share the unique experience of adoption in some fashion. Any suggestions or ideas on how to start a group would be appreciated!
