This National Adoption Week, we’re sending Moffle love to everyone whose life is touched by adoption. We celebrate the happiness brought to so many adoptive families, shout for better support for those living with relational trauma, and feel sadness for birth families who have experienced separation & loss.
As adults in the lives of an adopted child – parents, relatives, therapists, social workers & other professionals – we have a responsibility to help them understand their life story & support their sense of identity as it grows & develops. Answer their questions, honour their feelings & walk alongside them. As a community, give them a safe base where they can connect, reflect & continue to grow.
