Deaconess Pregnancy & Adoption Services offers a wide variety of events for every aspect of adoption throughout the year. As an agency, we believe adoption should go beyond a one-time encounter and encourage a DPAS family atmosphere that goes beyond the inital adoption of a child. If you’ve never attended one of our events, please consider doing so.
Along with numerous gatherings and events for all members of the adoption triad, we also offer the following two meeting services on a monthly basis for those touched by an adoption reunion and our birth parents. Please check our calendar of events page to find specific dates and information for each months event.
Shared Hearts is a gathering for those whose lives have been touched by search and reunion. It is not therapeutic in nature, nor is it geared to address mental health issues. It is designed to be a friendly gathering among birth families, adoptive parents, and adoptees. It is a safe place to help each other work through the challenges that arise when embarking on the reunion journey.
Common Threads is a gathering for birth parents. It is not therapeutic in nature, nor is it geared to address mental health issues. It is designed to be a friendly gathering among birth families. It is a safe place to share a meal and encourage each other.
