A forum to try and get more ideas and stories about transracial adoption in South Africa from adopted parents, adopted children/adults or birth mothers and -fathers who gave up their children. The organisation believes that ‘sharing knowledge that lies within us can only help each other’.
Meets on the last Thursday of every month at 19h00 in the hall next to the Lady Buxton Clinic in Claremont. Originally for people involved in Cross cultural adoption, but now for anyone involved in adoption. Meetings are usually an informal chat about any issue that someone wants to raise. Every three months there is an earlier meeting (18h00 which the children can come to as well)

Rainbow Support Group (JHB)
A trans-racial adoptiong support group (based in Jo'burg) that have been meeting for several years. Some meeting are get togethers to chat and share experiences, sometimes there are guest speakers. All childrend are invited as it is good for the kids to see that there are many families who are just like them.
The group offers support to individuals and couples considering adoption (transracial families, single parents, gay parents or any other family), as well as those who have already adopted their precious children. Meetings are held on the first Sunday of every month in order for adoptive families to socialise, share experiences and to offer hope and encouragement to newcomers. The PASG facebook page was created to provide additional information and a source for contact with all members. Please search for us on facebook or alternatively contact us on e-mail:
