Join us for our next Tough Talk, presented by Brook Randolph, LMHC, LPCC-S
As a part of openness in adoption and identity development, travel to your child's first country is a priceless investment and experience. Yes, trips can be emotionally difficult. There may be emotional and behavioral fallout. Do it anyway if your child wants to go. It may cost you financially, emotionally, and physically, but the investment in your child will be well worth it. Brooke Randolph shares as both a therapist specializing in adoption and a parent in an open international adoption.
