Are you unsure how to broach the subject of adoption with your young child? With the help of our adoption experts you will learn how to introduce adoption themes to your child through play, stories, and pictures. You will also become aware of how your manner and tone will shape their understanding of their story. We will provide both resources and "props" to help foster communication, as well as explore some of the common stumbling blocks that get in the way.
When & Where
Spence-Chapin Adoption Services
In our 100+ years we have found homes for over 20,000 children. We believe every child deserves the chance to grow up in a loving home. Yet millions of children, here in the U.S. and overseas, are denied this right as they languish in crowded orphanages or substitute care. Spence-Chapin works to keep their hope alive by offering:
- Domestic and international adoption programs,
- Free birth parent counseling,
- Home study services,
- Counseling, education and support groups for all memebers of the adoption triad.
