The Brady Bunch We're Not: Blending Family When Adopting a Traumatized Child.

Hope you can join us Thursday when we explore this topic. The discussion group handout is enclosed with this email so you can see what we plan to cover.

Date: 1/19/17
Time: 7:00 - 9:00p.m.
Where: 1550 Old Henderson Rd. Suite N162, Columbus OH, 43220
