Delaware County Pre-Adopt/Waiting to Adopt Group

I'd like to get a Waiting to Adopt support group going in Delco. The group would be for those planning to start the process, are in the homestudy process, or are just waiting to be matched.

Let me know if you're interested in helping to start one or attending.

I can see you already were lucky to get your baby- congrats!!! I am also from Delco and would be interested in such a group.

Hi there! Thanks for the congrats!

I've been in the process quite a while and was never really able to find any kind of support group for waiting parents (unless it was with an agency). There is an infertility/adoption group in media, but I talked with someone who was one of the "founding" members and she was the only one who was adopting when she was involved with it. Personally, being mixed in with others actively doing IF treatment didn't appeal to me.

Where are you in the adoption process? Where are you in Delco? You can PM me, if you'd rather....we live in Ridley Twp. Best of luck to you!

Support Group in Delco

Hi,

As an adoptive parent and licensed therapist, I recognize the lack of supports in the community for those waiting to adopt as well as those who have adopted. I'm in the process of forming such a group on Monday evenings. Currently, my office is in Bryn Mawr and I'm looking at moving closer to Delaware County. If interested in joining please let me know and I'll share my contact info. Best wishes to you both!

Dawn

Hi Dawn,
Thanks for your post. I would definitely be interested in learning more about an adoption/post-adoption group in the area, especially if it is in Delaware County. Do you want to private message me with your info or leave it here? I haven't been on this site for some time, but I'll check back.

Eileen
