Advantage Adoptions-OCOC is a child placement agency
Adoption offers a child the security that only a permanent home can provide. It means guiding a child -your child- through their formative years. It is a legal process that binds you to your child. You become responsible for providing the love, understanding, support and guidance the child needs to grow up and develop.
A kinship support group can help caregivers find answers to these and other pressing issues through the support of others who face the same challenges. Attending a support group gives caregivers time away from their children, and time with other adults and professionals who can offer encouragement and help with identifying resources in the community
Support groups offer a safe atmosphere in which to share information, concerns, feelings, solutions, and coping strategies with others going through similar experiences. While there are many joys and challenges that caregivers face, being part of a support group helps you know you have assistance in meeting the daily challenges
OCOC is committed to guiding you through this new and exciting time in your life. We provide training in a variety of areas for foster, adoptive, and kinship parents. This training will cover everything from how to deal with emotional issues brought on by the foster care process to raising your children in a healthy environment
