Tackling Tough Adoption Talks

Estimated: 1 1/2 Hours

You know talking about adoption is important -- but sometimes life isn't that agreeable. A complicated story, a lack of facts or information that's hard to share with your child can make talking about adoption really tough.

Our expert is joined by Carmen Knight, an adult adopted person. Carmen gives real life examples of how her parents incorporated adoption into her life — even when it wasn't an easy task.

Join Jayne Schooler as she discusses how to tackle tough talks when:

1. Kids don't want to talk

2. Siblings have different stories and different amounts of information

3. You don't have enough information to answer questions

4. You have biological kids AND adopted kids
