Pre+Post Adoption Support

The adoption journey does not end on the day a child is welcomed home. Children impacted by adoption or foster care have often experienced early attachment injuries related to loss, abuse, trauma, and/or neglect.

There Is Hope.

Whether you are in the adoption process or have welcomed home a child through adoption, you are not alone on the journey. There is hope in the form of practical teaching and resources to better equip parents and caregivers.

Hope for the Journey Conference

We are thrilled to announce Show Hope’s second annual Hope for the Journey Conference. Premiering April 8, 2022, with on-demand viewing through May 31, 2022, we will, again, be offering both an Individual/Household Viewing Option as well as a Church/Organization Viewing Option. The aim of this one-day simulcast event will be to shepherd parents and everyday caregivers to a deeper understanding of their children’s needs. By introducing robust resources and sharing practical experiences of successes and failures of the day-to-day, it is our prayer that parents and caregivers will leave encouraged as they continue to journey well with their children.

Additional Support

There are points in the adoption journey when we need others to come alongside us. That may be a professional, such as a counselor or therapist, who has received specialized training in how to best support children and families impacted by adoption or foster care. It could also be parents who have been on a similar road and now offer classes and community for others through Empowered to Connect Parent Training. Use the link below to find resources in your community, or to learn more about upcoming training opportunities.

Further Recommendations

Show Hope is committed to caring holistically for children impacted by adoption or foster care and the families who love and care for them. There are a number of different readings, DVD series, and other resources to help bring hope and healing.

Medical Care Grants

Many children who have been orphaned live with medical needs, with limited access to adequate healthcare. And once home, rising medical costs and access to treatment can be overwhelming for families.

Knowing financial resources are available to help offset expenses related to caring for a child’s complex needs, a family may feel more confident in their ability to provide for a child after welcoming him or her home through adoption.
