It’s World Wide Wednesday! Here’s what’s happening the world of foster care and adoption around the web:
- After posting about the film CLOSURE, Addison Cooper had the opportunity to interview Angela Tucker and her husband, filmmaker Bryan Tucker, about Angela’s search for her birth mother, the making of the film, and what this has meant in their lives. Read the post here.
- The April issue of the National Council for Adoption’s Adoption Advocate (Number 58) includes an article by Kris Faasse entitled “Birthparent Issues of Grief and Loss,” which explores a range of needs of expectant parents considering adoption, from their need to be assisted in exploring the option of parenting, to ways to assist them in reconciling adoption loss. It also includes information for adoptive parents and practice tips for practitioners.
- Join Adoption Learning Partners on Thursday, July 18, for a webinar titled “Can We talk? When Kids Start Asking About Adoption.” In the car … in the kitchen … at bedtime … it can happen when you least expect it –– your child asks you a question about adoption and you don’t know how to answer it. The webinar features Pat Johnston, author and publisher, as she discusses common adoption questions kids start asking and when and how to share the tough stuff and answer questions with limited information.
- This post on the Adoption Magazine blog, Hair Confessions of an Adoptive Mama, is from a real-life mom writing about her experiences with taking care of her adopted daughter’s hair.
