30 Days, 30 Posts: Adoption...The Tough Stuff

Oh how I wish I could say that adoptions always go smoothly, with no bumps, and everything is sunshine, rainbows and roses, but life happens sometimes.  As with a lot of parenting issues, for both biological and adopted children, sometimes it helps to find support from outside sources.

I want to share a recent blog post from Jill Savage, founder of Hearts at Home

I’ve talked to many families of late who have experienced the hard side of adoption. It’s not something we’re unfamiliar with ourselves.
Adopted children often have trouble connecting to the family who loves them. They have special parenting needs.  Sometimes they need to heal from pre-adoption abuse or neglect.
I’ve become familiar with some wonderful preparation for adoption and post-adoption resources over the past few weeks. If you are thinking about adopting, have adopted, or if you know someone who has, these are resources every adoptive family needs to know about.
