We tell people to work through their grief at not having a biological child or being pregnant or breastfeeding BEFORE they adopt. The reality is that sometimes after adopting a baby adoptive parents still crave the experience of pregnancy and still feel sad at not having a genetic connection to their child. Host, Dawn Davenport , will interview Carole Lieber Wilkins, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in the field of reproductive medicine, adoption and family building options since 1986. She is known for helping patients transition to non-genetic forms of family building, such as donor conception or adoption. Having created her family through adoption and ovum donation, Carole brings a wealth of personal as well as professional experience to her work. adoption, addoption, adopting a child, adopting a US child, adopting a baby, baby adoption, international adoption,  adopt US kids, adopt child, adopt a baby, infant adoption, looking to adopt, kids up for adoption, babies adoption, adopting child, foster care adoption, adopting from foster care, fostercare
