Adoption Support Groups

The National Infertility Association, RESOLVE, allows you to search for their support groups by zip code, or you can join in one of their online support groups.

The North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACA) has a database of almost 900 adoption-related support groups that you can search by state or province, or by the type of group you're looking for.

Birth Parent Support

The On Your Feet Foundation offers retreats, mentoring, counseling and educational grants to birth mothers post-adoption.

Birth Mom Buds offers retreats, forums, a newsletter, a blog and poetry to connect birth moms to each other. They support pregnant women considering adoption as well as birth mothers post-adoption.

Online Support Groups

If you find that the nearest local meetings are a bit too far for you, online adoption support groups and forums can be a good way to discuss adoption with others.

But the nice thing about adoption forums is that they're highly specific to groups of people. For example, there are forums for pregnant women considering adoption, forums for parents who've adopted internationally, forums for foster care parents, special needs adoption, adult adoptees and more. If you're looking for a specific type of adoption support group, here are some resources to help you get started:

You can find foster care and adoption support forums by state, which could also help you find local, in-person meetings with members in your area.

National Adoption Center has online forums for adoptive families of every kind, adult adoptees and birth parents. They also have resources, educational seminars and support specializing in special needs adoptions and the adoption of children from minority cultures.

Adoption Knowledge Affiliates has monthly meetings in Texas, as well as helpful resources for adoptees, adoptive parents and birth families.

The Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E) offers webinars, workshops, publications and free resources for adoptive families, adoptees and foster care families. They can also connect you with local adoption professionals who specialize in therapy and counseling in your area.

Search adoption support groups by state at American Adoption Congress, where you can narrow results down to your area and learn how to start your own adoption support group.

Daily Strength provides online support groups for adoptive families, particularly those in the early adoption process.

Gay Parent Magazine has a great resource of parent support groups within the LGBTQ community.

The Child Welfare Information Gateway provides information and resources for birth parents, adoptive families and adoptees of all types.

211 is helpful for finding local support groups and adoption-related resources for you to utilize.

You can also subscribe to receive news and information on adoption from Adoptive Family Magazine.
