To get current information about the AdoptMent program, please go to it's new website.

AdoptMent (Adoption+Mentoring) is a specialized mentoring program that brings foster and adopted youth together with adult mentors who have had similar experiences. It’s mission is to provide young people with an enriching mentoring experience that offers a unique layer of support, advocacy, and guidance from caring mentors who have personal connections with adoption and/or foster care. The program was conceived by April Dinwoodie, a transracially adopted person, and developed with Fostering Change for Children, which ran the program for 10 years in partnership with foster care agencies. FCFC is proud of all the meaningful relationships and support that AdoptMent has cultivated for both the mentees and mentors throughout its history.

AdoptMent is now being run by April, who is a passionate leader and advocate in the adoption field. FCFC is happy to see April lead the program to its next phase. To learn more about AdoptMent and how to get involved, please go:
