On Sunday June 23, 2019 the Connecticut branch of Adoptions From The Heart hosted a family picnic at Beardsley Zoo
Adoptive parents, birth parents and adoptees (adoption triad) kicked off the 2019 summer season with a family reunion picnic hosted by 501 C-3 nonprofit Adoptions From The Heart(AFTH). Each year the Bloomfield, CT office holds a picnic for family members of an adoption triad to hangout and reminisce. The annual picnic is not only fun, but it falls in line with fostering an open adoption relationship.
This year the family picnic was held at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, CT. This year’s picnic did not fall short of a success according to AFTH CT District Supervisor Susan Myers, MSW.
“It was a picture-perfect day for the CT Picnic at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport on June 23rd. Almost 70 people came out to enjoy reconnecting and relaxing while seeing the animal exhibits and giving kids space to run and play. We had 7 adoptive families visiting with their children’s birth parents and siblings, and several families had multi-generational, large groups present,” said Susan Myers, MSW.
