MCITP Family Support Network

A community of families dedicated to early intervention in Montgomery County, MD

I was wondering if there were any families in the Gaithersburg or Rockville area who have adopted children. I would love to either start or join a group in this area.

A great idea! I'll post this on the facebook feed as well. I hope you get interest. Best wishes for connecting (and/or getting it off the ground if you decide to start a group). Thanks for posting it.
Thank you so much for your response, Chtistina. 
I would very much interested in starting a group. 
I just need to know how to get started.
Oh that's wonderful you are considering starting one yourself. I would suggest that: First just think about what you would like the group to do and general mission. Then prepare a blurb or flyer for promotion to generate interest. :) Maybe that's a start? We're happy to distribute the blurb/flyer to families and/or include it in the next newsletter (winter edition, copy would be due at end of November). Also-- Although perhaps not exactly what you may be thinking about, there's also the local nonprofit P2P (Parent to Parent) which aims to match families with mentors (parents who have experienced similar path). Below is their contact info in case you wanted to explore possibilities with them. Don't hesitate to let me know if I can be of further help! Glad to help you brainstorm more. Best wishes on getting rolling! :) cheers, Cristina
