7 Ways to Give Your Child a History When a child is adopted from foster care at an older age, he needs to understand his story up to placement and the significance of his joining a new family forever. Here are hands-on activities you can use to start this conversation.
I'm not to sure about this as a child's time out...perhaps before the need for a timeout...or when u see another child having a melt down.

Honestly I'm struggling with this one right now. I committed to respect my child's birth family for years. Recent events have made this hard - not in front on the kids- but when talking to other adults or in my own head. I'm praying on trying to get back to that place of peace and respect. #adopt #birthfamily #respect
