Openness in foster care adoption can take many forms. Children adopted through foster care many times benefit from remaining in contact with siblings, birth parents, extended first family or foster parents. Because each child’s history is unique, the open relationships created in foster care are equally unique. Join us to hear directly from those who live this experience through their open adoption relationships. This webinar will include the perspectives of an adoptee, foster care adoptive parents and an adoption social worker. We will explore the benefits and real-life experiences of openness in adoption, how to support openness when direct contact isn’t possible, and what to do when openness is not a viable option.
This webinar will be useful for foster care adoptive parents, adoptees and professionals. CEUs and Certificates of Attendance will be provided to attendees. This webinar will be recorded and the recording link will be sent out to those who register but cannot attend live.Register Now
