Did You Know?
As much as adoption can include celebration, adoption also involves loss. These feelings must be acknowledged, validated, and grieved in order to heal. Children grieve differently than adults, so it is important for adoptive parents to understand and identify how loss and grief manifest developmentally, behaviorally, and emotionally and learn strategies for helping children heal. Adoption is a lifelong process for everyone involved with significant emotional and legal impacts. Explore these resources to learn more.
