This interactive workshop will discuss issues, challenges and rewards as adoptees age. Typically the focus is on the adoptee as an infant or young child but this workshop will focus on adoption throughout the lifespan at various developmental stages.  Adoption issues can also change over time; and families and professionals can learn what these changes are as well as ways to help the adopted child grow to be a healthy adopted adult. Krista uses personal and professional examples throughout the workshop.

Workshop will be held at the Holt-Sunny Ridge Office:
270 Remington Blvd, Suite D, Bolingbrook, IL 60440
