Great news! We have a brand new host team!
The Waiting and Newly Adoptive Families' (WNAF) Group is an informal gathering aiming to bring together those who are currently in the process of adoption, who are exploring the possibility of adoption, as well as those who have adopted within nine months. There will be sharing on what one can be doing to prepare while applying, waiting, and before adoption is finalised. It is a great opportunity to ask questions to our host team who have been through the process, and to others thinking through similar issues, in a safe environment. The gathering is very interactive and there is plenty of time for questions and answers.
Catherine Durant and her husband are proud parents to their two adopted sons. She began her involvement with AFHK through its information and support for “waiting parents” and then she supported AFHK as its Administrative Assistant before joining the Steering Committee. She has long had a personal interest in foster care and adoption and has learned much over the years through relationships with adoptees, children in foster care and other adoptive parents.
Lucas Renzi was an expatriate in Hong Kong 2012-2022. He is the primary carer of three beautiful children (two biological, and one adopted). Lucas heard about AFHK whilst living in Singapore and participated in monthly workshops when he moved to Hong Kong. He assists the adoption community through facilitating conversations between members and in an Australian Expatriate Facebook group, presenting AFHK's Australian visa webinar, and with his web and technical knowledge.
Catherine and Lucas are both currently serving on AFHK's Steering Committee. For more information about them, please visit its website: https://afhk.org.hk/committee
