Ben, who is 28 years old and works in a large church ministry in SC, was adopted shortly after birth and learned of his adoption story from his parents when he was four years old. He has dealt with feelings of grief and loss. In addition he has had a desire to know more about his birth family.
You may want hear how someone who grew up in a Christian family could have adoption-related issues. He will share what he believes you, as adoptive parents, can do to help your child have a more positive sense of self. If you have adopted internationally, you may also want to attend.
Ben has suggestions as to what he believes parents can say and how they can respond to their children's questions and desire to search for their birth families.
This Adoption Support Group meets every 4th Monday of month at the Vine Community Church, Taylors, SC.
