Adoptive parents spend a lot of time preparing themselves for adoption, but what about their extended family.  As much as we want grandparents, aunts, and siblings to be supportive and excited about our upcoming adoption, this is not always the case.  Join us today to talk about how to help our extended family understand our adoption.  Our guest will be Elisabeth O’Toole, Author of In On It: What Adoptive Parents Would Like You To Know About Adoption.  A Guide for Relatives and Friends.  Becoming an adoptive grandparent. How to help your child or sibling when they are adopting a baby or child.  Adoption and the Extended Family.
