We are so excited to announce we will be launching the Right Turn Online Book Club. The first book we will be reading will be Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew. As both an adoptee and president of Jewel Among Jewels Adoption Network, author Sherrie Eldridge brings an original approach to the topic of adoption. In an attempt to inform adoptive parents of the unique issues adoptees face, she discusses adoptee anger, mourning, and shame and adoption acknowledgment while using case studies to illustrate how parents can better relate to their adopted child.
Those wishing to participate should be an adoptive or guardianship parent and need to register below by September 2nd. Participants will be mailed a copy of the book via Amazon and there will be a total of seven meetings occurring every other week (twice a month).
There will be two groups. The first group will meet on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm with the first meeting on September 10. The second group will meet on Friday afternoons at 1:30 with the first meeting starting on September 11. The first meeting will be a chance for participants to meet one another and do a brief intro of the book. Once you have joined a group you are unable to switch groups.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Lisa Kelly firstname.lastname@example.org.
