Adoption is a beautiful, but also a painful process. There can be trauma or loss within every member of the family, even as a family is created and transformed. You may feel love, resentment, regret, joy, excitement, nervousness, and everything else in between. New parents, new children, and new siblings are all going to need room to adjust to what is gained, and also space to acknowledge that something must be lost for this process to ever occur.

The therapists at Relate Family Therapy and Counseling can help you feel and communicate all the multitude of feelings and reactions that come with adoption. There can be adjustment needs right away, and sometimes the adjustment comes later, long after the papers are signed. It doesn’t make your family any less valid or wonderful, even if the feelings are a little complicated.
