Birth parents need preparation as well as adoptive parents. How does one care for a birth parent, especially in an independent adoption, where there isn’t a “built-in” advocate for the birth parents?
In this video the panel discusses how vital it is for birth parents to not only be properly prepared to place their children in an adoptive home, but also to continue to receive care and assistance once the child has been placed. It is essential that an attorney be involved, and so helpful if the attorney has experience with adoption. Therapy for the birth parents is something that will be extremely helpful. Because all members of the adoption triad are at vulnerable points in their lives at time of adoption, the more help, the better.
