Getting Real

We expect your brain and heart are full, as you anticipate the arrival of your longed-for son or daughter into your family. In this course, we’ll remind you of the importance of cocooning and forming lasting bonds, what sort of transitional challenges could be ahead, give you some ideas for honoring your child’s origins, and maybe even pique your curiosity about how we want to support you and stay connected as your family grows.

  • We’ll provide some final thoughts - the synthesis of much you’ve learned and our warmest wishes for you, your heart, and home to be the place of hope for every member.

  • And lastly, be inspired as you hear real thoughts from adoptive parents and watch as families come together for the very first time.
