Are you trying to decide whether you will assist your teen who wants to search for birthparents? You may be wondering whether the time is right and how to go about it. You may be wondering whether your child will be hurt. The unknowns can be very scary.
Notwithstanding these adult questions and concerns, it is not unusual for teens to push for contact with birth family. This developmental stage presents adoption issues with a multitude of new challenges and complexities. Understanding this complex journey is essential for parents, especially when there is a desire to search for birthparents.
What happens after contact is made? How do parents ensure that their teens are safe in these new relationships? Preparation and support for everyone involved is essential.
Ms. Dorner will examine what drives the need to search, the parental role, the process that can lead to optimal outcomes, the role of social media, and more.
