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.

Practical Help

Children and teens can often carry unique, sometimes complex needs, and building trust, connection, and safety with them can be a daunting challenge. With research based in TBRI® (Trust-Based Relational Intervention®), Show Hope’s Hope for the Journey is your gateway to a wealth of knowledge, understanding, and practical tools to build connection, trust, and togetherness within your family. This online resource is ideal for parents and caregivers but also churches aimed at serving well children and families as well as organizations committed to providing holistic care for children and families.

Additional Support

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. Follow the link below to find resources in your community or to learn more about upcoming training opportunities.
