Connecting, Supporting, & Empowering LGBTQ Families in the DMV
Maybe Baby Class Overview:
The Maybe Baby series is designed for prospective parents, singled, married or partnered, who are considering parenthood and interested in learning more about the options for building a family. The series covers a wide range of topics, including readiness, overview of adoption, assisted reproduction, and surrogacy; financial and legal issues; building a support network; decision making as a couple; considerations for single parenting; and the joys and challenges of being an LGBTQ-headed family. The class is designed to provide a balance of active discussion and sharing, as well as to gain practical, accurate information that helps set the foundation for moving forward.
In order to insure you get the most out of this class, please indicate your gender identity on the registration form. Your gender identity is an important piece of information for group facilitators to understand your needs as an individual or a couple, to identify the paths to parenthood that may be available to you, and assign you to the appropriate track of classes.
Location: Whitman Walker Health, 1525 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20009

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE RAINBOW FAMILIES BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
In keeping with our organization's values of inclusivity and respect for all members of Rainbow Families, we have decided to postpone the family event at Camp Tockwogh due to to inadvertently planning the Camp Tockwogh weekend on the holiest of Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur. We deeply regret this error and any inconvenience to those members who have registered.
We have been able to secure an alternative date and invite you to join us November 10-12.
Refunds will be made and a new registration will open soon.
Again, our deepest apologies.
Rainbow Families Board of Directors
