If you are raising a tween or teen, chances are they are holding back. This workshop will help you hear teens and tweens thoughts on:
- Fitting in
- Relationships with their birth & adoptive families
- Adoptee loyalty
- Understanding their background
- Why…the ever present question
- Abandonment issues and Insecurities
- Control issues
- Self Worth
A unique and interactive workshop. You will hear and experience the thoughts of international adoptees….the “restricted information” shared openly and honestly. We will also provide suggestions to help you create a strategy that will strengthen the relationship with your child.
Cost: no charge. However, a freewill donation will be accepted for The Gift of Identity Fund. Suggested donation: $10 per person.
RSVP required: If you’d like to attend either workshop, please RSVP to info@AdoptiveFamilyTravel.com to say you are coming. Seats are limited and we want to be sure everyone is comfortable.
