How to Use This Blog

A Wayfarer is a person who is traveling, a particular place, a circumstance, a stage of life, etc. Let's walk the road of adoption together. The journey is so much better with company!

I hope this blog will be helpful to you in your adoption whether you are considering, waiting or home. I started this blog when we were adopting and found there was next to nothing on the web in any orderly manner. I set about to collect information for myself and then for others. Now, there are more sites for resources, but still not much that brings it all together. I hope this blog will serve as a sort of clearing house for Ethiopian Adoption Information. Please feel free to contribute your knowledge through commenting.
You can search by topic in three ways. 1. Go to the "key word" tabs on top and open pages of links in those topics. 2. Use the "labels list" in the side bar or 3. use the "search bar" above the labels list. You can also browse the blog by month and year in the Posts section or in any of the above as well. The sidebar links are to sites outside of this blog. While I feel they provide good information, I can not vouch for each site with an approval rating. Use your own discernment for each. If you have more to add to the topic, please add it in the comment section of that page or post.

Too Many Losses, Too Soon:

Loss and Grief in Adopted Children


Thursday, November 17, 2011

9:00-10:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

We provide certificates of participation - just ask! 

As the holidays approach, the memories and feelings connected to early losses resurface. Please join C.AS.E. Clinical Coordinator, Madeleine Krebs, LCSW-C who has over 40 years' experience working with childhood grief.


Thinking hispanic boyIt is critical that adoptive parents have a good understanding of the impact of loss on their children. Parents are often puzzled, worried, frustrated and sometimes overwhelmed by their children's behaviors and are not sure what to do. Participants will come away with a greater understanding of the unique losses experienced by adopted children, and the critical factors that influence children's reaction to loss. Ms. Krebs will address the 4 psychological tasks of grief work, as well as effective parenting strategies and healing therapies for children and teens.


Fee: $25 **Please note that this webinar is in the evening: 9:00-10:30 p.m. and the time is Eastern Standard Time.
