Teen Adoption Group

Uniquely Me: How adoption has shaped me.
EXCITED scared SAFE Happy CONFUSED relief
Angry Shy hopeful SAD

Adoption stirs up many thoughts and feelings, things that others cannot fully
understand unless they were in your shoes. Please join us as we bring together a
group of teenagers who have similar adoption stories and talk through both the
joys and struggles of their unique experiences. This group will allow you to interact
with those who “get you.”

Join us for an 8-week journey of self-discovery and healing. Topics will include:

Difficulties of being adopted from a different country

Dealing with sadness and grief

Adjusting to a new family and culture

How to cope with stress

How your unique story can shape your future

WHEN: Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30 PM beginning Sept 26 - Nov 21 (excluding Oct 31)

WHERE: Cherry Hill Counseling Center at 61 S. Old Rand Road, Lake Zurich, IL 60047

CONTACT: Amy Tanner at 847-438-4222 x17 or

COST: $40.00 per session

Facilitators: Amy Tanner, LCSW and  Ashley Yergler, MA, LPC

This workshop is for:

1) Teenagers between the ages of 14-19
2) Internationally adopted
3) Old enough at the time of adoption to remember prior life experiences before adoption
