About OurFamily

OurFamily Discussion Group meets simultaneously as OurRoots Mentorship Program. OurFamily meets for approximately 1-1.5 hours and is facilitated by Rorie Anders, MSW, LGSW.

OurFamily is open to any family member of an adoptee—parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, spouse/significant other, child. The group has open conversations, while other times there will be guest presenters, adult adoptee panels, etc. Even if your child (niece/nephew/spouse/partner, etc.) is not registered for OurRoots, you are more than welcome to attend OurFamily!
