Celebrate Adoption, which is a partner of Adoption Connection, is an adoptive parents’ support group that offers several programs each year to both prospective and experienced adoptive parents. We also let families know of other programs in the community that may be interesting and helpful.
After the adoption is finalized, we encourage parents, and later the child, to call on us with questions or for support related to adoption issues. If we are not the best resource to meet the family’s needs, we will refer you to appropriate resources. For issues of a more general nature, we recommend the family counseling staff at Jewish Family Service.
