Online Events

An important part of what ICAV does is help adoptees to connect with one another, to share lived experiences and have a safe space together. From our beginning days, ICAV has always held face to face events to foster peer connection and sharing. Since 2020, we have been challenged by COVID. Staying safe, dealing with COVID lockdowns, struggling with these isolating periods can be tough on adoptees. To help with this, ICAV has hosted a number of online events to allow our members a chance to connect through online video groups.
