Children who know the impact of trauma and early loss often struggle daily with fear, anxiety, and isolation. These emotions and feelings are most certainly heightened and triggered during this season of “safer at home” mandates and restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fear is real for us, as parents, so it must be real for our kids as well. But when we intentionally work to connect with our children, we can disarm many fears and anxieties and help our children feel more safe and secure.
Through Show Hope’s Pre+Post Adoption Support efforts, we have combed through and compiled a list of helpful resources to help you better understand and meet the needs of the whole child, particularly in this season of the coronavirus pandemic. Above all, our aim and hope is that these resources will guide and equip you as you work to connect with the children in your care.
