11:00 am - New Member Orientation
12:00 pm - Pot Luck Meal
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.
At Noon, we will have a Pot Luck Meal. Please bring an entree dish for six (6) people. No desserts, please.
From 12:30 -2:00pm, we will host a Panel Discussion:
Back-to-School: Finding a Supportive Community
Our panelists will describe how schools can create a welcoming and diverse community and how we, as parents, can enrich that mix. Come with your questions and learn what our region has to offer. We will have representatives from:
- The Buckley School
- Fountain Day School
- Oakwood School
- The Wesley School
No need to RSVP, but it helps us to plan. If you wish to volunteer to set-up or clean-up, let us know, too. We look forward to having you there!
