There are so many things to think about when considering adoption as a route to grow your family. How do you know if adoption is really right for your family? Where do you start? How do you evaluate adoption professionals? This session is for anyone considering adoption and looking for guidance before starting the process.
Prospective Adoptive Parent Advising
The waiting period is the perfect time to educate yourself on adoption and prepare for everything that happens once you’re chosen by an expectant mama. If you’re looking for guidance on how to ethically build relationships with expectant parents, want to prepare yourself for the possibility of a disruption or work through the aftermath of one, or just need advice on how to walk through the wait well, this is the session for you.
Adoptive Parent Advising
Just because your adoption wait is over doesn’t mean you can’t continue to learn and grow as an adoptive parent! This session is for any adoptive parent wondering how to navigate an open adoption, how to process adoptive parent guilt, or how to listen to other voices in the triad. (Note that I do not have lived experience with closed adoption or transracial adoption.)
