I wanted to let you know about a wonderful resource I just became aware of - Metropolitan Family Services, in the Chicagoland area.
For more than 154 years Metropolitan Family Services has been a voice for families. With compassionate counsel and services for families struggling to overcome incredible challenges, Metropolitan makes a difference in their lives and provides hope for their future. From early childhood programs to elder care services, every family member is encouraged to work together to realize their amazing strength.
MFS also has an "Adoption Preservation Program" which provides intensive home, office and community-based interventions for families formed through adoption or guardianship. Specialized treatment for attachment and trauma issues, grief/loss resolution, educational and emotional issues is provided through counseling, psycho-educational and support groups. Families are linked to needed resources and after-hour support is available. The program is supported by DCFS.
If you are in need of post-adoption support, please call 312-986-4000 or visit their web site for more information at www. metrofamily.org.
