Adoption is a beautiful gift that blesses the child and the parents. As beautiful as adoption is, the emotional challenges adoptive parents face may take us by surprise. We don't expect some of the questions and emotions that surface in the early adolescent and teen years. We hope this site will provide some encouragement and resources to help you gain perspective on how to understand the psychological and emotional needs that seem to be a common denominator in many families with adopted children.
