The adoption story continues throughout the lifespan because adoption is a lifelong journey.

This ongoing group is for adoptees who are seeking community and a space to explore who they are in the company of others who share this experience. People come to this group at different stages in the journey – some have traced birth parents, others have no information about their origins or may be beginning to learn more.

It is open to adults who were adopted at any age.

It is not uncommon for adoption-related issues to crop up unexpectedly throughout the lifespan. They can affect your:
Relationships
Identity
Life choices
Career
Family
Transitions
This group will help you:
Tell your story
Find community & support
Share your experience
Explore your adoption issues including: what you know and what you don’t, ideas of ‘family’ and selfhood
Make sense of feelings and reactions
Discover your own meaning in your life

Writing is a powerful way to create your narrative, to find your healing story. The group will try some gentle expressive writing exercises and there will be opportunity (but no obligation) to share.

British author Jeanette Winterson says:
“ Adopted people may feel silenced.”
“We need new ways to tell our stories.”
“Adoption drops you into the story after the story has started.”
“We need better stories for the stories around adoption.”
Facilitated by Kate Thompson MA MA CJT
Existential Psychotherapist & Writer (and adult adoptee)
