Growing Up Adopted

What Parents Need to Know

As your child grows and learns more about her story, she will have more questions, concerns and feelings about adoption.

Understanding those emotions and feelings is essential to helping your child build a healthy identity. But how do you learn how to best support her?

Ask someone who's been there! We’ve gathered a panel of adopted people – adopted domestically, internationally and from foster care - to reflect back on their own experiences and answer YOUR questions about:

  • Their feelings about adoption including loss, shame and differences
  • Their feelings on talking about adoption - to their parents and others
  • What their parents did right and what they wish they had done differently

Submit your questions for our panel here – we’ll ask our panel the top 10!
