Secrets Revealed: the Pressure to be the Perfect Adoptive Parent

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on July 5, 2017

Join us for a special webinar with Mardie Caldwell on adoptive parenting!We're excited to welcome Lifetime's Founder and experienced adoptive mom, Mardie Caldwell, for a LIVE webinar next Monday!

Adoptive parents in all phases of their story are invited to attend this free webinar. Anyone just starting to think about adoption, actively waiting to adopt, or newly parenting a child through adoption will find this webinar helpful! The webinar will begin at 4:00 pm Pacific time on Monday, July 10th

After they adopt, new adoptive parents encounter all kinds of complex emotions while adjusting to life with a baby or new child. Added to these emotions is a new, unique relationship with their child's birth mother. Some adoptive parents go through a mixed release of emotions after they adopt, including post-adoption depression and other feelings that may seem confusing as they simultaneously celebrate their long-awaited goal of adoption.

For some (specifically adoptive moms) the pressure to be the perfect parent who knows all the answers and has everything under control becomes overwhelming. Join Lifetime for an insider's look "beyond the blessing" with author and adoptive mom Mardie Caldwell. She'll share secrets from her first days as a new adoptive mom.

In this sensitive and validating webinar, Mardie will talk about lots of topics surrounding this theme, including:

  • Post-adoption depression
  • Honoring promises to your child's birth mother
  • Bonding with a new child through a wealth of emotions
  • and more!
