D.A. Blodgett for Children is hosting an Adoption Reflection Group for Birthmothers. We know that relinquishing a child for adoption has a lifelong impact on mothers and we believe that no woman should have to travel this road alone. We invite any mother who has voluntarily placed a child for adoption to come and join a group of women who are at different places on the same journey, to gain a sense of hope and healing.
We will discuss topics such as:
  • how adoption has changed us
  • grief and loss we experience
  • how to make being a birthmother a part of who we are.

The group will be facilitated by two master’s level clinicians and will run for six consecutive Wednesday evenings, beginning January 27.

If you would like to register or request more information, please call Emily Andersen at (616) 774-1006.
