Birthparent Support Groups
The Birthparent Support Group is an ongoing support meeting for birthparents who have placed children in an open adoption through Adoption Options. The group offers a safe, caring and confidential place for birthparents to share their stories, discuss issues unique to open adoption and celebrate their relationships in a supportive atmosphere. It is an open group allowing birthparents to attend as they desire. There are no fees.
