The Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association
As we are getting ready to celebrate the holiday season with friends and family, we want to thank you for all the support we have received through memberships and donations to keep the Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association’s programs running!
December 3, 2013 is #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving to kick off the giving season. This is the day people come together to celebrate and encourage charitable activities that support non-profit organizations. NFAPA is participating in #GivingTuesday this year. NFAPA helps support and advocate for foster families who open their hearts and home to Nebraska's most vulnerable children. Please consider donating at http://www.razoo.com/story/Nfapa-Givingtuesday. Your support will help us with the programs we provide like support groups, peer to peer support, kits for kids and in-service training.
When Attachment & Bonding Go Awry.
The Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association (NFAPA) was proud to help sponsor the Jane Ryan workshop "When Attachment & Bonding Go Awry" on September 28 in Lincoln. We had a room full of people wanting more information on childhood trauma. We hope you all learned a lot!
NFAPA also helped sponsor the showing of The Boarder movie. This movie was inspired by true-life events and how the family coped with their adopted child suffering from Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).
Jane is offering The Boarder movie and the Bonding Workshop in Scottsbluff. The movie will be shown at the Midwest Theater on Thursday, November 14th at 7:30 p.m. Cost is $7.00 per ticket. The workshop will be on Saturday, November 16th from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Regional West Medical Center. Cost for the workshop is $18 for Foster/Adoptive Parents ($34 per couple), $26 for Professionals (Counselors/ Social Workers) and $22 for other adults. Contact Speak Out to register at 308-641-8763.
Jane Ryan is working hard to bring this to the rest of the state. We will put a note on our website when it will be showing!
