3rd Post-Adoption Discovery Walk – Taunton Somerset

Viv Grant Events, News

Saturday 7th Sept. 2019 @ 10.30am

Due to the success of our previous post-adoption discovery walks and talk in the nurturing hands of nature, we are extending our reach by continuing to offer a safe and welcoming space for adult adoptees born between 1950 -1979 to share, compare or just listen to others about their adoption experiences.

The aims of the walks are for you to create connections and friendships with other adult adoptees primarily in the South West which may help you reflect, review, create new meaning or develop a fresh perspective of your journey as an adoptee. Please contact Viv here (your walk facilitator) for more information. The walks are free.
