Looking for Support Group for Teen Adoptee


I’m looking for a teen adoptee support group preferably in central Florida.Any ideas?

Replies

contact all your local agencies and ask them if they know of one. See if your therapist (if you have one) knows of one

Thanks, Regina.  Might just have to start one if I can’t find one…

Contact Devereux in Orlando. They have post adoption support group meetings every month and during the meeting, the teens meet separately. They have them in various locations across central Florida.

Yes… Mercy4free is right… Devereux has TAG (Teenage Adoption Group) during their post-adoption meeting… though the parents go to another room. For March, the Winter Park meeting already occurred on the 3rd; the West Orange/Westgate Drive happened on the 10th… but then there’s the St. Cloud meeting on 3/24th. If you need specific contact info, message me privately through this site and I will share it with you… just don’t like posting other people’s info wink

Here’s more info from an email I get from them…

Teen Adoption Group (TAG). Devereux’s Teen Adoption Group (TAG), is a support group just for teens. TAG is held congruently with the adoptive family support group and will go over an array of topics each month.

TAG is a great opportunity for teens to be able to talk about their adoption experience as well as develop a support system with other teens.

TAG will go over an array of topics including:
- Explaining Adoption to Peers
- Birth Family  
- Communication Techniques
- Problem Solving  
- Self-Identity and Self-Esteem
- Family Books
