Judy M. Miller is an adoption advocate and educator. I work with pre- and adoptive parents to help them prepare for parenting children who have been adopted. I present on and teach a broad range of topics and classes; among them stress in adoption, attachment, adjustment, psychosocial development, core issues, Tweens, Teens & Beyond, infertility to adoption, transracial parenting, becoming parents, trauma, and how to support the family who has adopted. I am a Certified Gottman Educator and a Parenting Counts Educator, assisting parents and their children with information and techniques to equip and empower them during challenging times. I am the Adoption Pro for Parenting Squad’s ProSquad and a contributor to Adoption Voices Magazine.
