Parenting is always a journey. It is full of joys and challenges. This is no different for an adoptive parent. My daughter is now 24 years old and learning to navigate the adult world with ADHD. My son is 21 and was diagnosed with FASD at 9 months of age. Both of my children have developed a relationship with their biological parents. I would welcome discussions with you on topics such as open adoptions, traveling overseas with children, and parenting children with behaviour challenges.
The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan provides pre- and post-adoption support services, including consultation, education, resources and more. ASCS provides these supports and programs to adoptive families, adoptees, birth parents, birth families and professionals. When adoption becomes the plan for a child, ASCS believes the child’s best interests are met when families are well-equipped with a broad understanding of adoption and the issues that may arise along the journey. Knowing what resources are available to support the child throughout their life within an adoptive family is essential from the start.
