Foster to Adopt: Our Family Story
All Adoption Stories
What is a "Time In"?
Adoptive families share a special bond.
There is an understanding that binds them and brings them together, and a shared life experience that can only be understood by others who have adopted.It’s natural, then, to form connections and friendships with others who have adopted. Staying in touch is not always easy, though. Parents lead busy lives, and they get busier as time goes on. Despite this, it is recognized how important it is to keep in touch with those who have made an impact on our lives and who share the bond of common experience.Incorporate some of these ideas into your life and staying in touch will become a habit that is hard to break:
Keeping in touch with one another is important because adoptive families have experiences that “traditional” families may not have, and they cope with emotions and feelings that are unique to adoptive parents. Connecting with like-minded people can be a powerful way to feel good about who we are and the choices we’ve made. And let’s be honest, that is important.
