We will meet at Holly Brown Coffee in a friendly and casual environment. This will be a time to share our experiences while waiting to be matched with a child. So come with a topic you want to discuss or just a listening ear!

Some proposed topics which will be discussed at our upcoming Waiting Families Gathering such as:

- I am matched! What happens now (short-term and long-term)

- Should I send my child to a playgroup during the time

  until the court appointment is due?

- Should I get a domestic helper - pros and cons!

 

The Waiting Family events are open to
⁃    members and non-members
⁃    families who have not yet been able to start the adoption process for one reason or another but who are actively planning to expand their family through adoption.
⁃    Families who are currently in the process of adopting a child (i.e. families who have started the home approval process)
⁃    Families who have completed the approval process and are waiting to be matched.


Please note that in Hong Kong the actual adoption application process is quite straightforward and clear and this information is available from the agencies that oversee local adoptions. We, therefore, ask that families coming to these events leave questions regarding application procedures and avoid treating the event as an information gathering session for sorting Hong Kong paperwork but, along with other waiting families, focus on preparation and developing an understanding of what it means to be an adoptive family.

We are not an adoption agency and thus do not give advice about application procedures.

This event is free of charge however all participants are expected to purchase something at the Holly Brown Coffee Shop.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email us at contact@afhk.org.hk. It may take a day or two for us to respond, as we are an all volunteer organisation working for all who are touched by adoption. If your question is urgent, please text or call us on +852 9034 2701. We look forward to hearing from you. 

等候領養家庭聚會 (中文)


親愛的等候領養家庭,

我們誠意邀請你們參加以下即將舉行之等候領養家庭聚會。這個聚會適合現正等候之本地及外國領養家庭/人士參加。我們希望藉這個聚會,讓各等候領養家庭分享正在等候的心情和經驗。大家不妨準備一些題目/問題,若你們沒有任何題目,亦請踴躍參與或聆聽其他參加者的分享。


中文聚會


日期:(星期一)2014年7月7日

時間: 晚上7時至8時30分

地點: 香港中環士丹利街22號,Holly Brown 咖啡店1樓

語言: 中文

如你們有興趣參加我們的聚會,請點擊這裡

 

我們將在此等候領養家庭聚會,討論以下主題:

 - 我剛被配對了一個孩子!接著下來我應該有甚麼計劃?(現在 - 將來)

 - 我應否在獲得法院頒予之領養令前讓孩子參加親子遊戲班?

 - 我應否聘請一個家庭傭工幫忙? 好處和壞處在哪裡?

 
此活動適合以下人士參加:

⁃會員和非會員

⁃希望透過領養孩子而擴闊家庭體系的人士,而他們卻因某些原因未能進行申請領養孩子的程序,但正在積極籌備有關領養孩子的事宜。

⁃目前正在辦理申請領養孩子的家庭(即其申請已穫批准及已展開申請程序的家庭)

⁃已獲批准領養孩子的申請而正在等候配對的家庭。

 

請注意,在本港領養孩子的申請過程一般是直接和清晰,這些資訊可以從負責本地領養的機構取得。因此,我們要求前來參加此活動的家庭不要視這次聚會為索取有關申請領養孩子的資詢活動,並與其他等候領養家庭一起將焦點放在有關領養孩子的準備及加深對成為領養家庭的認識。

在此聲明,我們不是領養孩子介紹所,因此,我們不會提供任何有關申請領養孩子手續的的資料和建議。

很感謝Holly Brown讓我們使用他們一樓餐廳作為是次活動的場地,亦免除最低消費之要求,但為維持他們業務操作成本,希望所有出席的參加者也能享用其餐廳售賣的食物或飲料。

若你們認識其他等候領養家庭,請把此訊息轉寄給他們。


如對此聚會有任何疑問,可發電郵至 contact@afhk.org.hk 或致電+852 9034 2701 與Teresa Lai 聯絡。我們期待與你們見面!
