RobynHarrod.pngWe 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 11:30 am, we will be joined by Robyn Harrod, a long-time social worker and adoption specialist, who has worked with hundreds of PLC prospective dads over the past 2+ decades. She will share her experience in family formation and answer your questions on the path to fatherhood.

 

At 12:15 pm, we will have a Pot Luck Meal. Please bring an entree dish for six (6) people. No desserts, please.

 

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!

 

As a little preview, here is a 22-minute conversation I had with Robyn this week about National Adoption Awareness Month (November):

 

Will you come?
