Your New Family
You will always be your child's strongest advocate.
Get help with daily needs at first
Commit to special one-on-one bonding activities with the new child, while emphasizing the continued love of your other children.
Take care of your spouse.
Practice positive adoption language, being sensitive to sharing your child's story appropriately.
Join a support group or church ministry to connect with other adoptive families and to learn from each other.
Helping to nurture your child's relationship
with Christ helps provide the most solid
foundation of identity within God's family.
Your New Family - Long Term
As your adopted child grows older, you should be prepared for unique circumstances in his or her life
Your unconditional love and prayers
will always be needed for your child.
