Online Support Group for CAFFA Families A supportive and knowledgeable community of your adopting peers is right at your fingertips: the Yahoo!CAFFA online support group. We have an experienced and open second family for you to exchange ideas with. You’ll meet folks new to the adoption journey, families growing for a second or third time via adoption, and some members who are calling their adoptive families complete, but wish to stay connected to their newfound online CAFFA friends. Join now to ask questions of all sorts; post family pictures; alert us to adoption events, news, and resources; share your joy; express your frustration, or concerns; and make friends and playdates. In order to become a member of the online group, you must be a member of CAFFA. To join the group, please e-mail your request to Sharon at email@example.com. Online Support Group for Parents of Teens CAFFA is pleased to announce the start up of a new online group for our members. We now have a forum for parents of adolescents and teens. These stages already carry quite a few challenges for parents, but as adoptive families, there may be added layers of complexity including but not limited to: questions of identity, behavioral changes, emotional issues and anger displacement. We invite you to join the conversation—voice your concerns, offer advice seek resources, share your stories, and celebrate your successes. In order to become a member of the online group, you must be a member of CAFFA. To join the group, please e-mail your request to Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
