Preparing Extended Family for Older Child Adoption Webinar November 30, 2022
Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, and friends are all impacted when a child or sibling group is adopted into their extended family. Adoptive parents often spend a significant amount of time educating themselves about the unique needs of children in the foster care system and specific issues of adoption, but what about other members of the extended family and community who may not understand the issues as well? This webinar will address common concerns extended family members may have, present information on typical experiences of children in foster care, and provide ways extended family can help integrate the child into their family. Extended family members are welcome and encouraged to participate in Adoption STAR’s webinar to better prepare them for an older child joining their lives through adoption.
After registering for this event, you will receive instructions on how to join the webinar.
