Insights into Homeland Tours

If you’re thinking about or planning, a trip to your child’s (or your own) birth country, many factors other than just travel influence how the trip goes: preparation around expectations; choosing the form of travel (adoption tour, family trip, solo adventure); an ongoing discussion after the trip that helps place the myriad of memories and novel experiences into a story that supports identity.

Hear directly from adopted persons and parents who have taken homeland tours. They will share their personal experiences and feelings from preparation to the lasting impact of their homeland travels.

Our expert will weigh in to help parents prepare for and plan their journey as our panel discusses:

  • The right age to travel
  • Preparing your child for the experiences and situations they may encounter
  • Preparing yourself to support your child during the journey
  • Travel tips and advice on how to organize the experiences and memories to make a lasting impact
  • Please join us on Twitter using #ALPhomeland
