Whether you are looking for events to meet new friends from around the world or just in your local community, CCAI’s The Park Adoption Community offers opportunities for all ages and backgrounds to get involved through adoptee-curated events and community opportunities.
All adoptee programming at The Park is coordinated and inspired by adoptees, for adoptees.
An adoptive family in Atlanta is hosting a free event for all adoptees to learn how to play table tennis (ping pong) on Saturday, July 22, from 10 AM – 12 PM at the Atlanta International Table Tennis Academy (AITTA).
Please RSVP to Junge Nie at email@example.com
We hope to see you there!
