Event description

Description

Take a break from the busyness of the holidays and join other foster, adoptive and kinship families for an evening of fun and relaxation. Your "presence" could be the best present you give yourself and your family this year.

Children and parents/caregivers are invited to join Formed Families Forward Board and staff for some food, fun and fellowship. A light dinner will be served to whole family at 6 PM and then children and youth are invited to enjoy holiday videos and art and crafts activities in the room next door.

Parents and caregivers will have their own "downtime", complete with holiday treats and conversation with other families. The event will feature a short presentation on easy strategies to manage holiday stress by Ms. Sally Masri, Mindfulness Instructor. Come and discover how you can find joy and gratitude in the moment, making memories for a lifetime.

Following her presentation to parents and caregivers, Ms. Masri will guide interested children and youth in a special activity just for them. The children will make a 'mindful jar' to take home to remind them to work on their breathing and relaxation.

Formed Families Forward (FFF) is pleased to sponsor this event. Formed Families Forward is a non-profit organization operating a resource center for foster, kinship, and adoptive families in the Northern Virginia area. While our focus is on formed families, our events are open to all. THIS EVENT IS FREE but please RSVP for our food and child care planning!

Please visit our website at www.FormedFamiliesForward.org for further information.

About our presenter: Sally Masri is a Mindfulness Instructor and owner of Be Still With Sally. Ms. Masri, an elementary school teacher with 23 years of experience, has been practicing mindfulness for seven years following a life-threatening illness that caused her to reflect on the stress in her own life. As a wife and mother of two, she has seen first-hand how mindfulness has benefitted her own family.
