We offer pre-adoption counseling and training for parents building their family through adoption. Pre-adoption counseling can be a valuable source of support as you experience the emotional roller coaster of waiting for your child. Those who choose to parent an adopted child need support for themselves, as well as help in understanding the issues their child may face.
Pre-adoption counseling will prepare you to help your adoptive child work through their feelings as they become part of your family. Pre-adoption counseling will also help you explore any issues that you may encounter on this often emotional journey. Your own history greatly impacts your parenting. Often the adoption journey brings many losses along the way, and it is important to work through the effects these losses have had on you, your marriage, and your family. Understanding your expectations of adoption will aid you during the process of adoption and prepare you for any challenges that arise as you parent an adoptive child.
