Adoptee Voices Panel: Follow-Up Discussion for Parents & Caregivers
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Adoptive & guardianship parents — Grab your favorite mug and your notes from the Adoptee Voices Panel (held on Nov 17th – find that registration link here), and join us for an evening discussion based on the dialogue from that event. This particular discussion will be just for parents/caregivers to process quotes, thoughts, and feelings from their experience of attending the panel. Attendees are encouraged to jot down notes & quotes during the panel itself, as well as to answers the following questions prior to our discussion on December 1st:
What stayed with me that I heard?
What surprised or confused me?
What is something that I heard that has “shown up” in our family?
What feelings came up for me during the panel? If you can recall, pair your recollection of those feelings with specific parts of the panel discussion. “When I heard ____________, I felt __________.”
Did anything I hear bring about a new conversation or reflection with a child that I parent or provide care for?
Did anything I hear impact or change my perspective on an issue connected to adoption?
This discussion will be facilitated by Christy Reppe, WISAPSP Coordinator and adoptive parent.
