Well balanced adoptive parents acknowledge the
differences that adoption brings and can openly discuss issues inherent in adoption
within their family unit and with others. Well balanced parents do not blame their
child’s or family struggles on adoption, nor do they were blinders where
adoption is concerned. They value all members
of the adoption tirade and facilitate age appropriate discussions and sharing of
information with their children.
Well balanced adoptive parents:
- Are supportive of the child’s interest and talents.
- Acknowledge and support child’s racial or cultural
- Follow the child’s lead in discussing tough issues.
- Openly discuss adoption and birthparent roles
- Can openly explore roles these without risk of
jeopardizing the bond between family members.
