Subject:Re: Evidence-Informed Peer Support Programs for Adoptive Parents

Sarah, There are numerous Facebook groups now, dedicated to supporting adoptive parents, adoptees, biological parents, siblings, family court reform, etc... Most of the formal research is published by the Casey Foundation. The #Taken activist group, and ParentalRights.org on the other side of this subject, offer a considerable amount of evidence-based information about the long-term destructive effects of forced adoption. Some key political figures that might provide additional resources include: Nancy Schaffer Mike Huckabee Hillary Clinton On Apr 11, 2017 3:40 PM, "Sarah Serbinski" > wrote: Hello, Do any of you know or have research/ evaluations/ agency papers/ working documents / anything!! on PEER SUPPORT PROGRAMS FOR ADOPTIVE PARENTS?
