11:00 am - New Member Orientation
12:00 pm - Pot Luck meal
12:30 pm - Girl Stuff 101: Raising Our Daughters panel discussion
We meet at 11am for our New Member Orientation. This is a support-style group for gay dads and prospective dads to share their experiences forming families.
Always a mix of current and future parents, this is a great way to get answers to your questions about fostering, adoption, surrogacy and co-parenting. Much of the conversation is about logistics--from agencies, attorneys, and doctors to play groups, pre-schools, and pediatricians. The payoff is when repeat visitors to this group come with their new arrivals--the children they have worked so hard to get.
This month, we will have a pot luck meal at Noon. Many longer-term members will come with their kids, so bring a dish to serve eight (no desserts, please). After the meal, we head out to the park to play with the kids. This pot luck is a perfect time for prospective dads to meet others who have traveled their path.
At around 12:30 pm, we will host a panel discussion: Girl Stuff 101: Raising Our Daughters. Come learn from a few pros everything you need to know to parent your girls, from bubble bath to feminine hygiene products. This is one of our most talked-about meetings. Don't miss it! During the panel discussion we will provide child care and arts and crafts in an adjacent room, hosted by PLC dads and teenage PLC youth.
Please RSVP, as it helps us to plan. We look forward to having you there!
