Parent Education and Support
What do I need to know about transracial adoption? How do I talk to my children (and their peers and teachers) about adoption and race? Where do I find special needs resources? What do the experts advise about return trips to China? Read any good books lately? These FCC-SoCal programs include screenings, as well as presentations and workshops with adoption and parenting experts. Parent-to-Parent Roundtables bring seasoned and new parents together throughout the year to share experiences, insight and resources. For more information, contact Programs@fccsocal.org and check the FCC-SoCal calendar.
Pre-Adoption Education and Support; Waiting Families
FCC-SoCal is often the first point of contact for Southern Californians seeking information about the China adoption process. Parent volunteers are delighted to answer questions via email. We recognize that "the wait" is now longer than ever. Waiting parents and siblings are invited to join FCC and to participate in activities as they prepare to adopt. Over the years, FCC volunteers have coordinated discussion groups, China travel preparation workshops, parent panels and social events to help ease "the wait," while helping families to prepare for adoptive parenthood. Let us know how we can best help ease the wait. Click here for more information and resources.
