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

Formerly the Empowered to Connect Conference, the aim of Show Hope’s Hope for the Journey Conference and Simulcast event is to shepherd parents and caregivers to a deeper understanding of their children’s needs. By introducing robust resources and sharing practical experiences, it is Show Hope’s goal 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.
