Support services available for adoptive families on the central and northern Island

The Adoptive Families Association of BC (AFABC) is pleased to announce a new adoption support coordinator for Central and Northern Vancouver Island.

“I look forward to getting to know families, lending an encouraging ear, and answering any adoption questions that come my way!” says Angie McMullen, the new adoption support coordinator for the region.

McMullen brings several years of experience with adoption to the position, including being an adoptive parent herself. Adoption support coordinators bring a variety of family supports to local communities, including one-on-one support, information sessions, workshops, support groups, and family events for adoptive families, waiting adoptive parents, and people considering adoption.

“The ability to provide adoption support that is sensitive to the needs of kids and families at the community level is important to ensure families stay strong as they grow together,” says McMullen.

Families are encouraged to get in touch with Angie McMullen at amcmullen@bcadoption.com or 778-789-5183 about the program services they’d like to see in their area.

Since 1977, AFABC has been dedicated to finding families for children and also to providing groundbreaking programs that support the entire adoption community.

The Waiting Child Toll Free Line, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Speak-Out Youth Zone, Focus on Adoption magazine—all are designed to raise adoption awareness, raise funds to support adoption, support children and youth who are waiting for families, and to help families get ready and stay steady throughout their adoption journey.
