Adult Adoptees of Color Support Group

“Being a transracial adoptee growing up was a bitter sweet experience. I always felt unique and special, but at times I yearned to connect with others that shared my experience. As an adult, having other adult adoptees in my life has given me the validation and support that I was lacking. It is without a doubt essential to my identity development and overall happiness.”

– Mariah Dixon-Wheeler, Adoptee of Color

Pact is collaborating with PACER to offer a free, drop-in, peer-led support group specifically for adoptees of color. This group will be a safe space for adult adoptees of color to connect, listen and share their experiences of growing up in an adoptive family. Space will also be provided for participants to explore and share experiences around international adoption, foster care, transracial adoption, search and reunion and other topics of interest to the group.

The group, led by Katie Wynen, will meet monthly on the 1st Tuesday of the month, check Pact’s event calendar to confirm dates and times. The group will meet at the Pact office, and participants must be over 18.
