This group will provide support to Foster/adopt families who just want to connect with other foster/adopt families. It is so important for foster/adopt families to connect, support, and mentor each other. This group provides a safe place to do so.  We will meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at Graceway Church (5460 Blue Ridge Cutoff, KCMO 64133).  While the group is not affiliated with the church or religion, childcare staff are available at no charge while attending.  Please note this is a support group and no training credit will be given.
