Flying Solo Adopting as a Single Parent

Adopting and raising a child as a single parent has become more common and widely accepted over the last decade. Yet, it can be a complex and challenging endeavor that requires careful thought and preparation. Singles who are contemplating adoption often have many questions, and possibly even concerns about the process. They may be filled with anticipation and excitement, or they may be unsure if parenting on their own is the right choice. This seminar will cover BOTH the process of single parent adoption as well as the joys and challenges after a child is home. Some of the issues addressed include going it alone, answering questions from nosy outsiders, helping the child make sense of his/her family, dating as a single adoptive parent, and the heightened sensitivity your adopted child has regarding loss and change.
