{Webinar} How to Talk About the Hard Truths in Adoption PART 2

November 30, 2016

Happy Wednesday!!!  I hope you are recovering from your holiday week and finding some semblance of a routine before Christmas blows that out of the water 😉

UPDATE!!!!  This recorded webinar is now available for purchase on my website!!!

Part 2 of the webinar “How to Talk About the Hard Truths in Adoption” is happening next Tuesday December 6.  This is part 2 of 2 but don’t worry if you missed part 1!  When you register for part 2, you can choose the option to also receive the recording of part 1.  They don’t have to be watched in order so don’t stress about trying to watch part 1 before Tuesday!

As always, the webinar is offered LIVE but ALL participants will receive a link to the recording.  The webinars are offered in the evenings because that works best in MY schedule, but I completely get that it’s smack dab in the middle of bedtime, homework time, and/or dinner time for all of you!  I love to listen to webinars while I’m driving- obviously I don’t WATCH the webinar, I just listen to it like a podcast!

Over and over again, I get questions from adoptive parents about how to find the right language to talk to their kiddo about all the hard things that happened prior to their adoption.  For lots of reasons (explained all in part 1!!) I believe strongly in the importance of being age-appropriately honest with our children about their stories, but so often we just don’t know what words to use!  We’ll address some of the toughest topics (drug use, physical and sexual abuse, abandonment, etc…) and not only will I give suggestions on actual language to use, but I break it up by developmental stage.  What you would say to your 5-year-old will be different than your 15-year-old!

Sound good?  Head over to for all the details and to register.

I’m so grateful tonight for the technology that allows me to connect with parents all over the world in all different ways.
