“There are so many families with questions and issues, living in places where adoption competent therapists are nowhere to be found. My husband and I attended your tween group last January. Both of us grew as parents as a result. Thank you for doing this.”
“Katie had a certain way of explaining things that made them both clear and powerful.”

“I decided to join the group because I am always looking for additional supports from people who understand the complexities of parenting kids like mine. I’m always interested in learning more about parenting adopted teens. I benefited from the group by hearing about the variety of all of our experiences and commonalities. Also, because of support from the leader and other group members, and from Katie’s calm and thoughtful insights.
There were some micro-interventions I learned which empowered me and potentially had a positive effect. For example, being more direct with my teen when I thought he might be keeping a secret from me. I also really liked the theoretical framework presented in the beginning and the discussion about being “savvy.””
