Adoptive Parent Voices

This webinar provides the lived experience of adoptive parents as well as some things we wished our younger selves had known and understood earlier. Topics will include:  handling your own fears; understanding how children understand and experience adoption; why the words we use matter; answering questions about our child’s birth and first/birth parents; responding to difficult behaviors in children (and ourselves); anticipating children’s questions whether they ask them or not; and re-working our parenting expectations. Experiences will include same race adoption, transracial adoption, foster adoption, infant adoption, closed adoption and open adoption. Expect an honest conversation about the challenges and the joys of parenting while remembering that hindsight is often 20/20. This webinar is appropriate for pre-adoptive and adoptive parents as well as professionals.
