Event description

Description

Join us for a brunch and conversation about planning a return trip to Ethiopia with your children. Are you considering a family trip with your child to reconnect with their birth country or meet birth family members? You're invited to hear from families who've already made this journey, listen to what they learned, and start considering what you might like this journey to include for your family.

Round-table conversation will be facilitated by MereAnn Reid, a child and familly therapist specializing in adoption support and experienced with a range of international adoption scenarios. We'll have time for a short presentation, conversation over a shared meal, and meeting other families who might be planning for a similar timeline as you. This event is intended for parents only, and your candid wishes + worries are welcome; childcare will not be offered on site.

  • Understand what information kids can handle at different ages + developmental stages

  • Tips for international travel with kids; creative ideas, must-pack essentials & funny stories about disasters we survived!

  • Consider what support would be most helpful as you prepare for this trip of a lifetime

  • Explore how orphanage or baby home visits may build your child's growing sense of their early life story

  • Learn about in-country resources, advance planning needs, and whether a guided tour could be helpful

  • Gather fresh perspectives + honesty about this type of trip

  • Hear what families have learned and would recommend as you prepare--or consider--your own family trip
