402: YES to Continuing Education for Adoptive Parenting & NO to Adoption Echo Chambers

Education for adoptive parents

Adoptive parenting has this in common with regular old parenting: just when you start to feel like you’ve mastered a stage, like babyhood, toddlerhood, tweenhood, or beyond, your child keeps growing and enters a new stage. And you’re back at square one, learning the ropes all over again. This is why it’s so important all along the journey to update and refresh your parenting credential. You can do this the hard way, as we all do, with the school of hard knocks. But do you really want to start from scratch with every new thing? Here with us is Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating A Family, to talk about saying YES to continuing ed and NO to adoption echo chambers.
