The sessions, which will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the county’s Government Services Center building (601 Westtown Rd., West Chester) on Wednesdays: March 5 and 12; April 2, 16, and 30; and May 14.  Staff will be in the lobby to direct participants to their assigned rooms, a news release said.

Organizers said six discussion/activity groups will run simultaneously in separate rooms: adoptive parents, grand-families (kinship families), teens (age 14-18), boys (age 6-13), girls (age 6-13), and pre-school (age 2-5). The children’s groups include discussion, activities, games, stories and crafts appropriate to each age group; adult groups are open discussions with occasional speakers, the release said.

Any adoptive family that is or has been involved with Chester County’s Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) or Permanency Partners is eligible for the post-adoption group. Other adoptive families can be included upon request to DCYF (610-344-5890). The grand-families group is open to any Chester County family that is headed by grandparents or other relatives who are sharing their home with nieces, nephews, grandchildren or other related children (also called kinship families), according to the release.
