Adoption Support -> Adoptive Parent Support Group
For those who have adopted privately, internationally, or from CAS, Lori is currently facilitating a support group held in Centretown, in the evening, on the second Wednesday of every month (September to June). If you are interested in meeting with other adoptive parents in a monthly support group setting, please click here to contact us.
If you have adopted publicly through anyone of the Ontario child welfare agencies, The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa (CAS), offers a monthly adoptive parent support group. The purpose of the group is to provide a safe place for parents to share and discuss common issues and experiences that adoptive parents often face. Each session is held at the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa, 1602 Telesat Court. All sessions are free of charge. To register for the group please click here. If you have any questions regarding this group, please feel free to contact Melissa Lumley-Pfeil at the Ottawa CAS adoption unit at (613) 747-7800 at extension 2223. For waiting adoptive parents, please contact Tara Cunningham at Ottawa CAS at (613) 747-7800.
