I am looking for a support group for immediate family members affected by adoption. A group for the birth father's parents or really all grandparents, aunts, siblings etc...Any help would be appreciated. I want to EDUCATE so the paternal family has more input...I also want to EDUCATE on adoption reform!Answer Question
Concerned United Birthparents, CUB, have several birth fathers as members. They also welcome anyone affected by adoption including adoptees, adoptive parents, adoption professionals etc. Unfortunately there are not enough support chapters in the country, but if there isn't one in your area you could start one. http://www.cubirthparents.org/
Also American Adoption Congress are one of the biggest organisations for adoption education and reform. They have yearly conferences. http://www.americanadoptioncongress.org/
Good for you for recognising that it is not only the birth mother that loses the baby to adoption but the entire birth family.
