When Kids Start Asking About Adoption

We all know about those moments when your child asks you a question you knew was coming eventually, but your child asks it at the most inconvenient moment.

You’re in a movie theater, your child sees an infant, and asks you where babies come from.

You’re having a stressful and busy morning, and your child asks you to explain what happens when we die.

You’re in a busy grocery store with four kids, and one of your children asks about his adoption story.

It seems that these important questions that you dreamed of handling so well completely catch you off guard and you are all of a sudden tongue-tied.

Well you are not alone! So many parents face this exact situation.

Adoption Learning Partners has an upcoming webinar called “Can We Talk? When Kids Start Asking About Adoption.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, July 18th at 7:00 pm. Talking to your children about adoption is so important, and I would encourage each of you to take the time to listen to this webinar and gain insight on issues such as common questions children ask, when and how to share the difficult things, and answering their questions with limited information available.

The cost of the course is $15, but we at ICM have some free promo codes for Adoption Learning Partners that we would be more than happy to give you for this event. If you would like one of the promo codes, just email Maria Gocke at adopt@icmfamily.org.
