Education Center for Adoptive Parents: Creating Family

Creating Family prepares parents for the child’s emotional, mental and physical transitions into their families. It addresses the importance of a child’s identity and birth name and what risk factors they may have experienced pre-adoption.

Finally, it also offers parents opportunities for self-reflection. 6 modules include: Claiming the Whole Story, Self-Reflection and Infertility, Ethics in Adoption, The Emotional landscape, Physical Transitions and Attachment, and Naming an Adopted Child.
