SUPPORT OUR FIRST EVER TEEN TRIP FOR OUR NEW FAMILIES WITH ADOPTIVE TEENS ❤️
“Adopted teens deserve fun too.” These words were sent to us a few years ago and we’ve held on to them ever since. In the fostering/adoption world, teens are often overlooked, all too often aging out of the system. It is important that AIOT supports those that step up to provide support and a loving home to these amazing teens. Today these families are still learning to be a unit in some regards, helping their teens overcome past trauma with a support system and life experiences once not possible. Every day there are new challenges and they face them together.
THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME
Now in our 5th year we are excited to make our first ever Teen Trip finally happen October 2-8, 2022. For our 5th family bonding adventure we are excited to have 5 adoptive families with teens joining us for a this trip. 5 Families + 5th Trip + 5th Anniversary! Since this is the first visit to #WDW for these families, AIOT sets up the travel plans, itineraries and even joins them on the trip to help all figure out the ins and outs of a #WDW trip. All so they can maximize their time focusing on each other and bonding with the other families. It is a trip for most families that otherwise might not be possible without the help of AIOT.

WHO IS ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE?
AIOT was started in 2017 to benefit first-time adoption families. Our mission is to advance the education and training of new adoption families while focusing on increasing the welfare of family relationships through #Disney and other nurturing experiences that encourage family bonding.
WHAT DOES AIOT FOCUS ON?
What AIOT focuses on is creating and building family experiences for newly adopted families – not only within their own family but with other adoptive families as well. We do so by awarding family-based, all-expense paid trips to these families, all from funds raised from their generous donors.
WHY ARE THESE FAMILY EXPERIENCES SO IMPORTANT?
Signing the adoption decree, while a blessing, is the beginning of emotional challenges to overcome and the unlearning of survival skills that may have been developed because of the past. It's not uncommon for trauma to play a major role in the world of foster and adoption. The American Academy of Pediatrics says, “Assume that all children who have been adopted or fostered have experienced trauma.” The trauma these kids lived with growing up came in many forms such as neglect, abuse, drugs, among others. Understanding this, families who foster and adopt not only invest their time and resources, they open their hearts and homes to help these children overcome this trauma and their everyday challenges.
