“Everything was well explained, I really learned a lot about what to expect as we raise our child and understand what he’ll go through in different stages of life.”
“The Christian-based component is key for me. Injecting how God sees us and how we teach this to our kiddos to help them identify with "self".”
“Engaging material with real life examples. I thought this course contained a lot of helpful information and suggestions on how to walk with my son as he ages.”
This course is designed specifically for parents who have adopted a child at any stage of their development. It is especially helpful for parents who have adopted a child at a young age so that they can have an idea of what to expect at different ages and how to help that child grow into a better understanding of their “adoption story.” Parents with older children will also gain insights.
