TALKING TO YOUR CHILD ABOUT ADOPTION

Tuesday November 29, 2022
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (Zoom)
The workshop will help parents gain insight into their child’s adoption experience and learn ways to talk to their child about adoption at all stages of development.
Topics will range from telling the child about their birth parents, knowing what information to provide to your child and when, and learning how to create an open atmosphere that promotes healthy conversations about the adoption experience.
There will also be two guest speakers to provide real-life experiences and challenges they have faced from the perspective of an adoptive parent and an adult adoptee.
