Support Groups

These groups offer birth parents, adoptive parents and adoptees a community where participants share their feelings and concerns about a range of issues in a supportive and empathetic environment.

Is your teenager experiencing strong emotions and erratic behavior that you're not sure what to do with? It's normal for all teens to question their identity, choices, and values; for adopted kids, their process has extra layers of complexity. But just because it's normal doesn't mean its easy! Living with any teen is a challenge for the whole family. Spence-Chapin's Adoptive Parents of Teens Group offers practical guidance, support, and community with other parents in the same boat. Give us a call to sign up now.

This weekly group will be held in our Manhattan office Tuesday evenings (6:30-8:00pm) April 29th through June 3rd. Contact us at info@modernfamilycenter.org to sign up!

Teenagers often exhibit unexpected emotions and behaviors as they question their identity, choices and values. Adoption adds a layer of complexity at this time as teens prepare to separate and individuate from two sets of parents, one of which is often unknown. Kids meet to share with peers while parents with other adoptive parents.
