Finding the right professional

How does an adoptive family find the right professional to help their child? There are so many professionals out there; how do you know which one is right for your child? Well, there are many factors to keep in mind. Here are a few questions to ask:

  • Is this professional a Christian?
  • Does this professional accept our insurance?
  • What is this professional’s area of expertise?
  • What is the typical demographic of this professional’s clientele (how experienced are they in working with children)?
  • Does this professional have any personal experience with adoption?
  • Does this professional prefer to work with the child, or the family as a whole?

There are many questions to consider, and hopefully those questions can help you begin to brainstorm regarding what is important for your family in seeking out a professional.  Dr. Karyn Purvis recently addressed this question in a video format. Here is a link to her video:
