Exploring Children’s Developmental Understanding of Adoption in Bala Cynwyd on 1/22/20

January 22, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In this workshop we will anticipate your child’s questions about being adopted, what children need to now at different ages and stages about their origins and their stories. We’ll explore how children feel about adoption, what’s on their minds and in their hearts. Our conversation will include building a healthy identity based on honoring your child’s dual heritage (birth and adoptive) and the unique emotional landscape of loss that is a normal part of adoption experience and integral to the search for self.  FACILITATOR: Abby Ruder, Marriage & Family Therapist, has been specializing in parenting and adoption for 25 years. She works with all members of the adoption triad pre-& post placement.  Ms. Ruder is also a mother by adoption in an interracial family.

Registration is required for all events.
