If there is one thing that is almost guaranteed in parenting, it is that children will have questions. Questions about where babies come from, who they look like, why some people look different from others and many more. This is also true for adopted children; however their story is different from most of their peers. Every child deserves to know where he or she came from and his or her own story. Life books are a tool for helping a child gain a better understanding of how their past connects with the present, telling the child’s life story. The training focuses on the importance and purpose of life books, a best practice tool used to bring parents and children closer together. Life books guide difficult conversations about a child’s trauma and loss history and adoption. Parents will learn about the process of creating a life book with their child and gain helpful ideas about what to include and how to move forward with their child’s life book.
