Grief & Loss in Adoption 
Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
 Cost $20/person 
The profound loss that is experienced before an adoption occurs deserves to be acknowledged and grieved. The adoption triad consists of the birth/biological family, the adoptive parents, and the adopted person. The loss for birth families weighs heavily within the adoption triad with many unknowns. The loss for adoptive parents may also include infertility and/or expectations of a child. The loss an adopted person can experience is often overshadowed by the gains of an adoption.
