Adoptee Support Group

 

Adopted people can often feel isolated within their families and the community. This support group has been formed by a group of adopted people to provide an understanding and supportive environment in which to share all the ups and downs of the search and reunion process…and to explore the impact adoption has had on their lives.

 

Support meetings are not for everyone, but many adopted people who have attended and continue to attend feel certain they have benefited from the experience. For some, the thought of going to a support group meeting can be scary and may conjure up images of previous “group encounters” -  where you sit in a circle and directed by a facilitator and must contribute your experience to the group. Jigsaw Queensland Support Meetings are not like that at all. They offer a friendly, open environment around a coffee table so that adoptees may reach out to each other, helping each other along the sometimes bumpy road that is the adopted person’s journey.

It's nearly two years since I've attended and it has made a difference to know these meetings were always running. I'm back because some things have changed in my life and I feel like I need some support and feedback again.

The more I listen to what others have to say, the more I learn about myself. And that continues for longer than the two-hour meeting. It seems I am still getting insights and feeling better about what makes me tick for days afterwards.

The first meeting I ever attended was a huge relief. I wasn't alone. It gave me permission to acknowledge what I always knew - that adoption had left its mark on me.
