Adoptive Family Seminars
We know families continue to need support and education even after your adoption is finalized. New Life hosts a variety of adoptive family seminars to provide ongoing support and help connect you with other families who may be in similar stages.
Join us for this unique post adoption seminar. You will hear from Rob Lindsey, an adoptive father and chiropractor about chiropractic and holistic care that can help children who have experienced traumatic births, had drug or alcohol exposure in utero, have allergies, or have one of a variety of other health conditions. In addition, MN Adopt will be sharing valuable post adoption resources.
Thursday, March 12, 2020 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Adoptive Triad Panel
This seminar features a panel of all members of the adoption relationship: the adoptee, adoptive parents, and birth parents. You will hear the birth parent(s) share about their journey in making an adoption plan, the adoptive parent’s story about what led them to pursue adoption, and the adoptee’s experience in this unique relationship.
Date TBD – To view a video of our last Adoptive Triad Panel contact our Post Adoption Social Worker at the information below.
This seminar is focused on adoption from the adopted child’s perspective. This panel features adopted children of various ages who will share their experience and adoption story. The panel will speak about their experience growing up, their level of openness with their birth family, and offer insightful advice on how to support your adopted children.
Families of adoption often have unique relationships that other families may not experience. There can be a lot to navigate within these unique relationships and you may not always feel fully equipped to handle them. Whether it is a relationship with a birth family, a relationship between and adopted child and a biological child, or navigating transracial relationships within your family, it may feel like you are alone in your experience. Come hear a panel of adoptive families talk about their experience navigating the many relationships within adoption.
