Description

This DVD provides a realistic look at frustrations and exhaustion adoptive parents frequently experience. It addresses grief and loss, attachment, anger, aggressiveness, and out-of-control behaviors, emphasizing the need for school advocacy, medical referrals, crisis intervention, support groups, respite care, and therapy by adoption-savvy professionals. It validates kids’ feelings of anger and confusion over their situations, gives permission to continue to love one’s birth family, and reinforces the idea that making the adoption last is the responsibility of all family members.
