The relationships that children have with their siblings can shape them for life. Sibling connections are especially important for children who have experienced trauma, as sibling relationships can help a child process shared experiences. Sibling relationships also have a profound impact on identity development for children in adoptive families. Please come join us to discuss this very important topic, learn how to advocate for siblings in foster care and hear from our GUEST SPEAKER about her journey adopting siblings.

 

An opportunity to meet with other prospective adoptive families to share experiences, discuss the adoption process and provide each other with support during the period awaiting an adoptive placement.
