Every Child Has a Story: Tools for Telling Their History

Pictures along with age appropriate journaling provide an important connection for children to their unique history of the way they joined their adoptive family. Regardless of the type or amount of background information you have about your child before he or she came to you, it will be essential to create an appropriate record.

Learn about:

  • The importance of having these tools
  • Where to start
  • Dos and don’ts
  • How to make the information age-appropriate
  • Much more

This training offers assistance to people who want to either begin creating such a tool or who want to more fully develop an existing one.

Comments from past participants:

  • This class really helped clarify the difference between a scrapbook and a life book, and what is involved in creating a book that is helpful, supportive and meaningful to our child.
  • It was especially valuable to have the class taught by an adoptee who could emphasize personal experience and how that relates to life history.
  • This class gave me more tools for talking to my daughter about her life story.
