Why You Need This:

Because even if a birth parent isn't available for a relationship right now, there's things you can do to still honor their important place in your child's life

Sometimes even if adoptive parents desire an open adoption, birth parents choose differently for a variety of reasons. Sometimes there are harder situations surrounding adoption placement. Honoring and respecting your child's birth parents (despite their choices and story) will be a way to honor your child's full identity and story. In this mini-course we cover how to love the birth family from afar, how to talk with your child about their adoption story, and the practical ways you can still honor their biological culture and place in your child's heart.
