Observations in Adoption Month

November 19, 2016

Adoption is a life changing experience, both for the adoptive parents and adopted child. 

Adoption is romanticized in the media. They don’t necessarily tell the whole story, along with the bumps and warts that are come along with real life. 

They don’t necessarily know about the challenges that can be part of the journey, especially when adopting from foster care.  

To be fully aware of the potential issues, talk to adoptive parents. 

Open adoption in the media

January 13, 2014

I have been following openadoptionbloggers.com for a while. They cover a wide variety of adoption issues.

A post today talked about a TV show, based on the story about a reunion between a birth mom and the son she placed for adoption a number of years earlier.  Here is a link to the review. http://openadoptionbloggers.com/2014/01/13/kirstie-a-shallow-take-on-adoption/

The show is on TV Land, so it is likely on available in the US initially.
