"I really enjoyed this presentation. I retired as the social worker for the perinatal and obstetrics unit in a major hospital working in that department for 15 years. I intend to call the unit tomorrow and ask the manager to have all the social workers and the nursing staff to take this course. Thanks for your help."

Our panel - an adopted person, a birth mom and an adoptive mom - reflects back on their own experiences with adoption and pose questions to each other giving adoptive parents insight into the thoughts and feelings of each member of the triad.
Sharing their personal stories, and asking challenging questions of each other, offers an understanding of different experiences to parents who may not be able to ask such questions in their own adoption relationships.
