First Year Home: Educational and Support Groups for Parents and Their Adopted Infants and Young Children

In this 8 week group, parents learn about the flow of child development as they engage together with their children in age-appropriate songs, stories, games and activities that are designed to support adjustment and attachment. Parents are assisted in problem-solving sleep, feeding, toileting, limit-setting, sharing issues and more. Parents receive support, resource information and connection with other adoptive families. This small group is facilitated by a therapist with over 15 years experience working with adoptive families.

Cost for the group is $45 per session, 8 session minimum (some sliding scale options).  Ages of the children: infant to 4-year-olds who have joined their families in the last year. Group meets in either lower Queen Anne or West Seattle, depending on interest. Meetings are generally weekday mornings from 9:30am to 11am. Groups are formed as families call to express interest. We need at least 4 families to begin a group.

If you are a newly adoptive family interested in joining us for this group, please contact me by phone or email. Exact dates to be determined. Call now; we will set a firm start date when we have enough sign-ups. Call for more information: 206-498-9895, or email:
