Parenting an adopted child can sometimes be very different from parenting a biological child who has had loving parents and a safe home from birth. Children are shaped by their circumstances no matter how young.
Dana over at Adoption Journey has a great post up about a situation with her son Wenxin who is 8-years old and has been a part of their family for ten months. Understanding and attaching to your child is so important in any adoption. For additional resources, check out Toddler Adoption: The Weaver’s Craft by Mary Hopkins-Best and Attaching in Adoption: Practical Tools for Today’s Parents by Deborah D. Gray.
But right now head over to Adoption Journey and read Dana’s very insightful post! Wenxin definitely has a great set of parents. 🙂
