5 Bonding Tips for Adoptive Parents

Make It a Family Affair

When you participated in the home study during the adoption process, your family was interviewed multiple times. They were vital to the adoption process then, and they're critical now. Once your adoptive child has settled in, carve out regular family time. If it seems awkward at first, plan activities like board games, sports or computer games that everyone can participate in. Cook together, eat together, institute a family movie night. Now is the time to circle the wagons and show your adoptive child that he's an important part of something special.
