Can We Talk? When Kids Start Asking About Adoption

In the car...in the kitchen...at bedtime...it can happen when you least expect it - your child asks you a question about adoption and you don’t know how to answer it. As much as you prepared for this, when it actually happens it can be very difficult.

Maybe you haven’t talked about adoption yet, the answer is tough to hear or you just don’t have enough information to answer your child’s questions. But your answer matters. Talking matters.

Join us for a webinar featuring Pat Irwin Johnston, author and adoptive parent, as she discusses:

  • Common questions kids start asking and when
  • How and when to share the tough stuff
  • Answering questions with limited information
