More About The Program

Join us for four sessions to gain support and skills training for parenting adopted teens and older children.

 Hear from other parents who have been there and done that.  Hear from professionals that have been working with adopted teens for over 20 years.  Join with and support other parents in the adoption community.

This group is a way to come together with other parents in a supportive environment to hear from each other and experts about parenting and self-care skills from an adoption-competent lens.  From time to time, we will invite a guest speaker to join us. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the program's facilitator, Cynthia Cubbage, via email at ccubbage [at] barkerfoundation.org or call our office at 301-664-9664.
