TAO at The Adopted One’s blog
I value Creating a Family for the wide variety of topics relevant to adoption, both the good, and especially the hard topics. The team at Creating a Family tries hard to bring inclusiveness to the community, and welcomes everyone. The guests on the shows are varied, both in the topics covered and views of the guests. The blog posts are interesting, relevant, and often thought provoking. Dawn Davenport is also an advocate of hearing the many different voices, and lived experiences of the adoptees, something that that is lacking elsewhere. I recognize that it is hard for some prospective and adoptive parents to hear the struggles an adoptee (your child) may face, research that shows mixed results, or even, what you didn’t want to hear. Knowledge is priceless, and the willingness of the team at Creating a Family to provide balanced information will serve you well as a parent through adoption, if you are willing to hear it.
