I’ve been a regular on the Creating a Family website and interactive Facebook group for more than 6 years now. It’s been an amazing source of information and education for me as I learn how to parent well these two sweet girls who have come to us through adoption. I first heard about Dr. Karyn Purvis’s book The Connected Child during a radio show and group discussion of the show and since then have been regularly sharing a huge variety podcasts and other resources here with many of the moms with whom I am in relationship. The Facebook group discussions and the wide demographic that the group serves has broadened my understanding of the adoptee experience and given me a safe place to ask questions or share concerns that might be awkward in other settings. I am so grateful for the foundational issues that Creating a Family returns to over and over for families like mine, presented regularly in new and fresh ways that equip me to be a better mom and better mentor to other adoptive moms in my life.
