We’ve Been Robbed!
How does loss, grief, and instability impact the adoption constellation?

With Sharon Kaplan Roszia

Life postponed and life events that never will occur: Conferences, Easter, Passover, High School senior years, weddings and attending funerals of loved ones. For those of us with losses, how does the virus further impact our mental health and how can we respond?

Sharon Kaplan Roszia, M.S., is an internationally known trainer and author who helped pave the way for open adoption practice believing in keeping connections over time. She has been devoted to her work in adoption and foster care since 1963 and is also a parent by birth, adoption, and foster care. She has co-authored two books on open adoption, The Open Adoption Experience, and Cooperative Adoption. She is the recipient of an ‘Angel in Adoption’ award from the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute; ‘Humanitarian Award’ from the American Adoption Congress and awards from The North American Council on Adoptable Children, ATTACh, and the Annette Baran and Rubin Pannor Award for Outstanding Work in Adoption. Sharon’s most recent book is The Seven Core Issues in Adoption and Permanency, co-authored with Allison Maxon and released in 2019.
