Adoption Conversations & Life Story


Every adoption story is unique. An adopted child’s understanding and view about their adoption changes with time. Much of their story is dependent on the conversations you have with them. Often it is difficult to know where to begin and what vocabulary to use. It is essential to have open communication from the very beginning about your child’s adoption. Common themes we see are: parents personal barriers of what they feel comfortable sharing, how to create teachable moments, how much and how honest should the parent(s) be. This resource guide is not an all-inclusive list, but rather a tool to help you access the information you need. We encourage parents to start with the following resource: Positive Adoption Conversations: An Adoptive Families Guide (PDF)
