- When should I tell my child about adoption?
- What should I say?
- How do I handle difficult information?

Talking with your children about adoption can be difficult. Learn how you can answer some common questions and gather the tools and understanding to have family conversations about adoption. This session is part of a series of adoption-related seminars presented by Catholic Charities social workers with post-graduate certification in adoption-competent practice.
