Foster/Adopt: Parents Helping Parents & Totally FAB Kids Night

A Child’s Hope Ministry invites you to attend Parents Helping Parents (A foster/adoptive parent support group) and our Totally FAB Kids Night (FAB = Foster, Adoptive and Biological Kids).   Come fellowship and learn with other foster and foster/adopt families.  

When: Saturday, May 7 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Where: Building C - Student Center

Register:  Click here to register online.

Dinner:  Pizza (cheese & pepperoni), Soda, and Water will be provided for both the parents and the children.

Parents Helping Parents

Our primary goal for Parents Helping Parents is to get foster/adoptive parents together to create a sense of community among people who have dedicated their lives to fostering and adopting orphans and children in need.  We want you to learn from one another and support one another on your journey.  This group will be self governed by foster/adoptive parents and the goals/agendas for each meeting will be set by the parents.  If you do not yet have a foster placement, we would still like to have you join the tour at the student center.  

Totally FAB Kids Night

While parents have their own meeting, your foster, adoptive and biological kids will have a fun night in the student center.  We know your ability to participate is greatly impacted by your children’s happiness so our primary goal is to create a fun and meaningful two hours for your children.  Activities will be planned for children birth through middle school but high school children are welcome to attend and help out too!  Please register online.

Program:  Ed and Angie Sterling on Dr. Karyn Purvis' Approach - Trust Based Relational Intervention
