Is That My Birth Mom On Facebook?

Online tools like Google and Facebook have revolutionized the way we look for information and connect with one another. This has meant that open adoption communication is more convenient than ever before.

It can also mean that your teen (or even tween) may be searching for birth relatives online. She may also be approached online by a birth relative ... or someone posing as one.

For many adoptive families, this possibility is both exciting and terrifying.

This webinar will share strategies and tips on how adoptive parents can:

  • Talk to their child about searching
  • Gauge if their child is emotionally ready to conduct a search
  • Prepare themselves and their child for possible outcomes
  • Identify safety risks and how to avoid them
