Transfiguring Adoption Elf Squad

December 18 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Transfiguring Adoption Elf Squad (TAEF) is a group of Harry Potter fans who use their fandom to create magical lives for foster and adoptive kids by ensuring that their caregivers are given proper care and support. The local Elf Squad meets on the third Wednesday of each month, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., Round Rock Public Library.

THE ISSUES

Most foster parents are NOT prepared to handle specialized behaviors brought on by trauma, sexual abuse, PTSD, malnutrition and other issues that are present in nearly all foster or adoptive children. Consequently, children frequently suffer another traumatic move to a new another home due to overwhelmed caregivers.

PART OF THE SOLUTION

Transfiguring Adoption helps create ways for parents to engage with kids in their care and start conversations about difficult situations through media. Books, movies, songs, and other media are a great way for people to relate to one another and understand each other’s feelings.

Elf Squad not only gives fans a place to enjoy the Wizarding World that they love but gives them fun opportunities to help kids who may be in a less than desirable home situation like Harry Potter. All are welcome!
