We are a UK based group of parents who have adopted our children from the looked after system in the past 20 years. All of our teenagers are incredible survivors who need specialist parenting which can be very hard going. Despite dealing with some heavy subjects, we like to meet socially and have a bit of relaxation with other parents who understand what we are facing. These pages are by way of an introduction to our group, our aims and an overview of what we do. Our Group is a not for profit organisation committed to this community. Here is a brief (not exclusive) list of things POTATO group do.
This weekend it is the POTATO arts day and several members are looking to attend with lots of creativity. We are a group that physically meets up as well as using our facebook and conferences plus individual face to face times.
It’s on the 24th of June 2017 in the Sheffield area. There are a few spaces left if you are a member and would like to go. Just email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Check out our website over the next couple of weeks to see photos.
This blog piece is a fascinating insight into life of a member who has a changing reality of relationships.
We understand the separation rate in adoption is similar to that of parents with children who have additional needs.
But there are a few amazing individuals who have healed, moved on and explored having a relationship. Plus the dating side can be great fun!
This weeks blog is all about this. It’s a brave thing to have written.
