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.

 - 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?









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。
