Adoption brings many changes to your life.
Don't be surprised about your strong emotions when it comes to deciding whether to choose adoption to build your family. How do you deal with the waiting time and then how do you deal with the sudden change in your family when a child is placed with you? Gradually your family adjusts to the new reality and everyone seems to be settled. You may be surprised at the grief and loss adjustments to be made in your family again when your child, teen, or young adult reaches a new stage of development and understanding. How do you deal with openness and re-unification?
Let’s talk about it so that you as an adoptive parent, an adoptive child, an adult adoptee, a birth parent or anyone else touched by adoption, can gain understanding of why you are feeling the way you are and how to come to new understanding.
People often find they need support around adoption related topics such as:
- The wait
- Placement excitement
- Developing connections
- Understanding adoption dynamics
- Building attachment
- Grief and loss
- Openness connections
