First of all, please help us celebrate the 13 families winding their way through airports today to bring home 15 children! We are so excited to welcome home these families and their precious children.
This past weekend we hosted our first post adoption camp/conference, Parenting the Hurt Child, and it was a great success! While the parents focused on intensive training in Trust Based Relational Intervention®, the kids joined for a camp-style weekend of learning, games, group work, and play. We hope families went home with tools to help their children grow! One parent shared, “I love this class. I wish there was more! If you want to improve your parenting skills, take this class!”
Are you interested in a similar class? Stay tuned for our next 8-week session ofParenting the Hurt Child,planned for this fall. The class is open to all families, whether they adopted through CCAI or not, who are interested in learning more about working with children who have difficult pasts.
