Fostering Together: Whether new to fostering, or a long-time veteran, each child we care for presents new challenges to our family and new opportunities to reach out to their family. Together we strengthen our serve and our families by walking in community. Sharing with others who have been there can offer encouragement, understanding, support and advice, and desire to learn from other’s experiences in a positive environment. Join the Fostering Together group the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm at Ridge Point Church- Door E, 304 104th Ave, Holland. RSVP required for childcare (provided free of charge).
NEW! Parenting TEENS Together: Parenting teens can be a challenge even in the best situations. Throw in various levels of disfunction, insecurity, trauma and loss related to their birth family, and it’s no wonder these years are so difficult for our kids. It’s important to sharing our stories, dreams, fears and ideas with other parents that understand how past trauma and loss affect our teens. As parents, we are stronger in community. We are stronger when we can safely express our fears and frustrations without fear of judgement. We are stronger when we can encourage, support, and hold each other accountable to our faith and calling to love these kids. Join the Parenting TEENS Together group the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm at Ridge Point Church- Door E, 304 104th Ave, Holland. RSVP required for childcare (provided free of charge).
NEW! Lakeshore LINKS Int’l Adoption Group: Parenting internationally adopted children brings its own set of challenges and opportunities. Our children have experienced great loss of both family and culture, and having spent their much of their formative years in less than ideal settings, their needs are different than those of their peers. We desire to share our challenges, successes, and experiences adopting from other cultures within a positive, encouraging, understanding and supportive community of parents. Join the LINKS group the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm at Ridge Point Church- Door E, 304 104th Ave, Holland. Please RSVP if you need childcare (provided free of charge). Contact LINKS@MosaicFosterAdopt.org for more information.
PLAYGROUPS: Sometimes we all need a change of scenery, and some socialization with our peers -- that’s true whether we are parents or young children! The Mosaic Play Group provides parents and children opportunities to get out of the house, play in new spaces to stimulate your child’s mind in new ways, socialize with other children, and give parents a chance for adult conversation. Locations vary by season. Watch Facebook or sign up for a reminder email for locations.
