The process of preparing and supporting foster and adoptive parents for their journey can be a rewarding, yet challenging practice.
All prospective foster and adoptive parents have their own individual motivations to take these steps, which can range dramatically from person to person. Along with these various motivations come unique ideas and expectations of this chosen journey.
Children in foster care also have pre-conceived expectations of their foster and adoptive parents.
When these two worlds of expectations collide, this complicates matters greatly.
Led by a seasoned clinical social worker and adoptive parent, Leslie Hales, this webinar will explore the role of parental expectations within adoption and foster care as well as how to support families and children with navigating the realities of this journey together.
