Blended Families - A Conversation


Adopted youth who grow up in blended families are sometimes at risk for feeling somehow less connected than their non-adopted siblings. Join a conversation with an adoptive parent, a non-adopted sibling and an adoptee who have lived experience in blended families that include children born to and others adopted into the family. Hear from each as they offer insight into and feedback about strategies and approaches to living as a blended family, including both those that have worked and others that have not. This conversation will push you to think more deeply about how to support adopted youth in these families.  This webinar is appropriate for members of blended families built by adoption as well as professionals who work with them.
