    ALL TOGETHER NOW (ATN) SPRING 2016 REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN Adoption Playgroups for 5-9 Year-Olds Tweens Peer-Support Group Teen Mentor Program Parent Discussion Group     Five Sunday Sessions:  2:00-3:30 PM January 24, February 28, March 13, April 17, May 15 Union Temple Preschool 17 Eastern Parkway, 4th floor Brooklyn, NY 11238 “For years, the stories of adoptive children were not heard. That’s finally changing.” *   ATN ” now in its eighth year ” is a non-profit group that offers a range of adoptee-focused programming for ages 5 through adult. Adoption Playgroups for Children, 5-9 years old Fun, multiracial playgroups, facilitated by adult and teen adoptees for adopted kids from a wide spectrum of backgrounds. Themes around identity, family and friends are explored.  The groups provide a “safe space” for kids to build relationships within the adoptive community. For Tweens   A peer-support group for 10-12 year-olds that embraces issues, as they come up, in a fun and nurturing environment. The group is facilitated by an adult adoptee, and offers tweens the opportunity to connect and chat about “what is really cool ” and may not be so cool ” about being adopted.” For Teens The Teen Mentor Program creates opportunities for 13-18 year-olds to facilitate peer supportive playgroups for children, ages 5-9, while acting as role models. Our adult adoptee team, in turn, provides supervision and support to the teens to foster growth and exploration.  Carfare and community service credit are available. For Parents ATN provides a space for adoptive parents to gather, connect, share resources and discuss adoption-related issues. All sessions are led by an adult adoptee facilitator.  The $250 per child fee for the children’s and tweens groups includes the parents discussion group. Who We Are At ATN ” now in its eighth year - we believe that adoption comes with unique developmental processes for adoptive families and that they differ from biological families for that reason. We particularly value the perspective of adult adoptees, seek their input, and support their concerns as an integral part of our program. We strive to create a community in which adopted children, teens and adults can determine their own experience and form supportive friendships among themselves. ATN groups offer support to children and parents.  ATN is not a therapy provider.  For more information and to register, visit our website http://www.alltogetheradoption.org.       *Rebecca Carroll, Columnist, The Guardian, after participating in ATN this November.
