top ten Adopted people and adoptive parents don't always look at adoption the same way. Many of the challenges adoptees struggle with may be difficult for parents to understand and come to terms with. Both a parent's and a child's adoption experiences change over time, based on life events, ability to understand the circumstances, and new facts as they become available or are discovered.
Understanding your child's feelings about adoption is essential, so how do you gain some insight?

We've gathered a panel of adopted people, featuring adopted person, author and speaker, Sherrie Eldridge. Listen in and ask questions as they discuss:
  • What they wish their parents had known
  • Their feelings about loss, shame and anger and their love for their parents 
  • What feelings they shared with their parents and what they kept to themselves
  • What kept them from talking to their parents when they were younger and why
