Adoption is a special way of creating a family unit. It comes with much love and joy as a child is made part of a family. At the same time there are many struggles that come with processing the adoption experience. Perhaps you are an adoptee with questions regarding your identity in your family and community? You may have questions about when to talk about or explore your birth history. Or perhaps you are a parent or sibling who is struggling with the process of having an adopted child in the family unit? As a parent you may wonder if and when there is a time to share birth-history with your adopted child. Many other questions and concerns arise as well throughout the stages of life. We are here to help the individuals and families “process the process” of the adoption experience. Contact us to learn more about adoption counseling.
