Bonding with Your Adopted Child

03 Dec

Bonding with your newly adopted child is a topic bounced around quite a bit – some new parents over look it – going with the “love at first sight” theory – while parents at the other end of the spectrum can obsess over it non-stop.  Fortunately, there is a great middle ground.  Bonding is a very important issue in any adoption:  international, domestic, foster, open, closed, etc.  Whether you have read a pile of books on bonding – or you are just getting started, Adoptive Families Magazine has put together a wonderful website covering a full-range of bonding topics extending through the first year of being a new adoptive parent.  Check it out here – and you’ll find a variety of articles organized by topic in an easy to read format.
