At first look, it might seem that adopting a child known to you would be simple. Many of the relationship steps have already been accomplished such as learning one another’s personality, interests, and history. However, kinship adoption also comes with its own set of questions and challenges. What is our new relationship supposed to look like? How do you transition into the role of parent when you have been the aunt, grandparent or neighbor for so long? Maneuvering through complicated familiar relationships involving adoption can be tricky. Maintaining healthy boundaries is so important when dealing with all the emotions you might experiences, from loss and guilt to joy and comfort and all those feelings in between. Taking care of you is also a crucial component for success. Come and join us for the opportunity to discover new techniques for you and your family!

*Trainings more than 100 miles from Omaha with no registered participants 48 hours prior will be canceled. Make sure to register early to help ensure trainings will be held. Please notify us as soon as possible if you are no longer able to attend.
