An Invitation to Parents of Adult Adoptees

by Luanne

Guest blogger Lisa and I are at the stage where our children are adults. We can’t find a private Facebook group (or any, for that matter) for Parents of Adult Adoptees. So we are proposing to start one IF there is enough interest.

What seems amazing at this point is that their problems as adult adoptees at times seem larger than when they were children. And their relationship with their adoption changes, too. What they feel and think at 13 is not the same as at 18 and not the same as at 24 or at 29. Who knows what it will be like as they age into their thirties and beyond.  We want to be knowledgeable about ways to be supportive to them.

Here’s your invitation:

If you have older kids, 17, 18 and above, would you like to meet in a Facebook private group to discuss issues relating to our adult adoptees in a supportive environment? If you do, ask to join here. We can’t wait to see you over there!

  1. Great idea… My son’s only 14 but I can see a point when I might welcome support and advice even after he’s flown the nest, for just the reasons you give. They’ll always be our children, however old they are.

  2. We’ll share it on our Facebook page for you.

    Thanks for linking up with #WASO

  3. Everyone needs a safe place – and – you are also correct in your assumption! May you have open conversations and the needed support!
