60 - 90 MINUTES
Support Groups are a great opportunity to connect with other parents and adoptees who share the same experiences, struggles, etc. Some of our groups are also open to individuals and couples contemplating adopting or fostering.
The group time frame is 60 to 90 minutes, usually held in the evenings.
Participants under the age of 18 require
a permission form from their parents to attend an adoptee support group. All groups are strictly confidential. Due to the Mandated Reporter Law, confidentiality is broken (in the groups where attendees are under age 18) only in cases where abuse or neglect are reported, or the child reports thoughts or attempts of self-harm.
*Currently AFR support groups are limited geographically to the South-Metro area of Atlanta, GA.
