Event description
Join us for Spring Forward 2021 Digital Edition: Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Family Event, a virtual family-friendly fun filled morning!

About this Event

Since 2014, Formed Families Forward has hosted an annual Spring Forward Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Family Fun Day. This year, our fun day will be an abbreviated family fun event online!

There will be virtual activities for the whole family:

  • Children ages 5 - 12 who can focus on a a screen device and use a camera and microphone will spring into music with NeuroSound Music Therapy through an interactive, virtual session where participants will target developmental, social and emotional skills while engaging in movement, singing, stories and active music making.
  • Teens and young adults will have their own session with special keynote speaker, Oleg Lougheed, an adoptee and founder of Overcoming Odds. Oleg will share his personal experience surrounding resiliency and strength and then share how participants can use their personal stories to overcome adversity, suffering and struggle in achieving their personal success.
  • Parent, caregivers and professionals will have a facilitated peer-to-peer discussion around issues that really impact foster, adoptive and kinship families.

Separate rooms will be set up for each group via Zoom and GoToMeeting. Therefore, each family member will need their own device to access their specific event.

Virtual room links will be shared with participants several days before and the morning of the event.

Lastly, each group will have a raffle drawing at the end of each session at 10:55AM. So, stick around!
