I hope this note finds you well and that your families are thriving.
There are a few opportunities to gather this month, both virtually and in-person that I wanted you to know about:
On Thursday, May 11th from 11:30-12:30 we will be continuing our collaboration with Encompass Adoptees. In this virtual lunchtime gathering, we’ll be exploring the sixth chapter of the book “Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology and How You Can Heal” by Donna Jackson Nakazawa. A training certificate will be provided. I want to reiterate that you do not have to have read the book to join in; all are welcome in this discussion!
Our caregiver retreat will take place on Saturday May 13th from 9:30-12:30 at Calvary. The theme of the day is “Cultivating Intentional Joy,” and once again we’ll be led by spiritual director Natasha Burrowes. Breakfast and a training certificate will be provided! Please RSVP to me as soon as possible so I can be sure to order enough food.
On Saturday May 20th from 10:00-11:30 we will be meeting up at Makino Park in Mason for our monthly Pray + Play gathering. If you haven’t visited Makino Park yet, you are in for a treat…it is beautiful. Coffee and donuts will be provided.
Our Zoom support group will meet on Wednesday, May 24thth from 8-9pm. A training credit certificate will be provided. This is an informal, supportive space for caregivers to share the joys and concerns of life.
I hope you can join us. In the meantime, reach out if we can support you in any way. I love hearing from you.
