mardie secrets webinar.jpgThe process to adopt and adjusting to life as an adoptive parent is one that’s emotionally complex. After adoption, adoptive parents go through all kinds of intricate emotions as they adjust to life with a new child, on top of a new, unique relationship with their child’s birth mother. Many adoptive parents express a feeling of relief, while others feel a sort of “let-down” after adoption.

In a special adoption webinar held last week, we shared about post-adoption depression, adoption guilt or fears through the process, and honoring promises made through adoption. Discover how you can listen to this webinar by reading on!

Adoptive mom, award-winning adoption author, and founder of Lifetime Adoption, Mardie Caldwell, spoke from experience through her own adoption story. Mardie shares secrets from her early days as a new adoptive mom. Wherever you are in your adoption story, this will be a great webinar for you!
