Join Angela Tucker from The Adopted Life, Lori Holden, author of The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption, Kara Anderson, Amara Post Adoption Family Support Specialist and Katie Biron, Adoptive Parent as they dive deep in explaining what openness in adoption really means. This fast paced, interactive workshop will leave you reflecting on what level of openness your family has about adoption and perhaps more importantly, what level of openness your child needs you to have to support healthy identity development.
