FACILITATOR: ASTRID DABBENI
Astrid is the Executive Director and co-founder of Adoption Mosaic. She has worked in adoptions since the early 1990’s. Her life-long interest in adoption is rooted in her own adoption at the age of four with her older sister from Colombia.
How often have you gone to a theater and unexpectedly found yourself watching a movie that was “dripping” with adoption (like the ones listed below)? How many times have you left the theater with questions about the film and how it addressed adoption? This is an opportunity to watch some of these films with other adoptees followed by a facilitated discussion focused on adoption. Adoption Mosaic’s Tween/Teen Movie Group seeks to create a collective space where adoptees can learn from each other, build community, and find support.
