Preparing for the New School Year
Margie over at Third Mom had some great tips for preparing adoptive children for the new school year. I value her thoughts as she has two teens who were adopted from Korea. Though I don't have children entering school, this is great food for thought as we adoptive parents (especially who are waiting) begin thinking about the ways in which we can raise awareness about adoption issues -- in a positive way -- among those that will interact with our children regularly, whether it be our child's teachers, friend's parents, our relatives, pediatrician, babysitters, Sunday school teachers, etc. I believe this will only help our children feel more secure and better understood. Adoptive Families also has a great article on the same subject.
