The Foster & Adoptive Parent Group is an outreach of Cherrydale’s Orphan and Foster Care ministry. We offer practical, emotional, spiritual, and educational support to existing and considering adoptive and foster families at Cherrydale and in the surrounding Northern Virginia community.

We meet to share our stories, our successes, and challenges so that we can pray for each other and provide encouragement. During COVID, the Foster/Adoptive Parent Group meets virtually on the second Saturday of every month for prayer and support. Pre-COVID, we met on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 11:00–12:15 pm while your children participate in their Sunday classes.

Anyone who is currently an adoptive or foster family or those who are considering adoption or fostering are welcome to join us! We simply ask that you keep confidential any personal information shared during our meeting times.
