Adopted children are susceptible to low self-esteem because of early childhood experiences which leads to consistent low measures of self-esteem.
Loss and grief can be difficult even as a parent. How do we help our adopted child deal with the intense emotions that often stem from loss and grief?
One of the best things about my job is helping families like mine discover how to connect more deeply while exploring their child’s birth country.
Once I began researching the issues related to being adopted I found striking similarities amongst the impacts adoption has on our children.
Keeping in mind the needs of every family member traveling on your child’s Heritage Journey will help you determine the type of trip that suits your family.
Celebrate Women! Today is International Women’s Day, so we are recognizing an amazing organization that we work closely with in Guatemala, Starfish!
If you want to build connections with your child, step outside your comfort zone and try something new! Adventure is the key!
In order to build deeper connections, we can employ what I call the chemicals of connection (hormones your body produces that make you feel better).
Planning a trip to your child’s birth country can be daunting! But the most important task is to define your goals and consider the desired outcomes.
Should we search for our child’s birth family? I hear this question more than any other when families are planning a Heritage Journey.
