Many of you are aware of the widely renowned adoption professional, Jane Brown. She travels the world talking with adoptive parents and children.

Jane is both an adoption social worker/educator and an adoptive & foster mother of nine children, some of whom are now grown. She lives and works in Arizona. She serves on the editorial board of Adoptive Families Magazine and writes a regular parenting column for the publication. She is the creator of Adoption Playshops which is a series of workshops for adopted children age five+, their non-adopted siblings, and adoptive parents in which children are helped through playful, multi sensory activities to explore growing up in an adoptive family and racial identity, plus develop skills for dealing with societal attitudes and beliefs about adoption and includes helping children resist and confront racism and bullying.

Jane will be presenting a series of Adoption Playshops for our groups (Toledo, Detroit, Ann Arbor area) the weekend of June 1, 2, and 3, 2007. Registration will open in the next few months and space will be extremely limited.

If your children are not yet old enough to participate in the Playshops (5 or older), you will be invited to the parent seminar presented by Jane on Friday, June 1, 2007. Both parents are encouraged to attend as are grandparents, teachers, etc.

More details on the Playshop weekend will follow soon.
