Pre+Post Adoption Support
The adoption journey doesn’t end on the day a child is welcomed home. In many ways, it's just beginning.
Many children who have been impacted by adoption and/or foster care have experienced abuse, trauma, neglect, and early attachment injuries. In order to continue to restore hope and promote healing, we work to provide adoption and foster care support through practical teaching and resources to equip parents, churches, and professionals in this journey.
Show Hope’s fourth annual Hope for the Journey Conference will be available for viewing April 5, 2024, with on-demand viewing period through June 30, 2024! With viewing options available for Churches/Organizations as well as Individuals/Households, the conference encourages and resources parents, caregivers, and families meeting the needs of children entrusted to them through adoption and/or foster care. And twofold, the conference also serves churches and organizations in their ministries and support of these children and families.
There are points in the journey when we need others to come alongside us. That may be a professional, such as a counselor or therapist, who has received specialized training in how to best support families impacted by adoption and/or foster care. It could also be parents who have been on a similar road and now offer classes and community for other families.
