12:30 pm - Santa!
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 is our Holiday Party! We will have a pot luck meal at Noon, with a surprise holiday visitor! No need to bring food--we are providing lunch. This is a perfect time for dads and prospective dads to meet others who have traveled their path.
Last month, we amassed many items in our PopSwap--dads brought gently used clothes & toys, but no one took anything home! So, we are bringing it all back on Sunday and we encourage you to go through your closets and bring items, as well. Members should take home what they wish and we will donate the remaining items to Baby2Baby. This is a great local nonprofit that partners with a range of local foster agencies and homeless shelters, distributing clothes and toys to needy families across Los Angeles.
Please do RSVP, as 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!
