I'm a mother of three wonderful children, ages daughter-18, daughter-11, and son- 10.  Our oldest and youngest joined our family by birth and our middle daughter by adoption.  She was born in Seoul, S. Korea and came home to us at age 3.5 months.  We were influenced by a desire to maintain a connection with her Korean heritage to host and work with international exchange students and I am now the Regional Director for a non-profit exchange organization in AZ, CA, HI, NV, NM, and OR.  We live in MI but are moving to Queen Creek, AZ in June after our oldest graduates from high school (she'll be attending Univ. of AZ in Tucson).  I'm wondering if anyone knows of international adoption support groups in AZ as I'm eager to ease my daughter's transition during this move and thought this might be a nice connection for her.  Thank you!

Hi Natasha, welcome to the group! I love the way you've found to keep your daughter connected to her Korean roots. :-) As far as looking for a local support group, I would advise making a new post in the general discussion forum for the group. I don't think everyone reads the intros regularly, so you might get more response there. GL!

Hello Ladies!! I'm Cortney! I have been married to my DH for 8 yrs and we just recently adopted our daughter from foster care!! She was 3 mo old when we met her only weighing 7 lbs . She was premature and had trouble eating due to her horrible acid reflux. We finalized our adoption 2 wks before she turned a year old! She is the love of our life! I look forward to chatting with you and learning from your experiences since I am a first time mommy!! :)
