This class will address how trauma affects the developing brain in infant adoptions. We will discuss the impact of trauma on child development, attachment and sensory integration, and will review the effects of neglect and issues of institutionalization. Practical parenting solutions provided.
Due to the sensitive nature of the material being discussed, we ask that you make other arrangements for child care.
Hi! My husband Jeff and I have been married for 31 years. We have 9 children. Three by birth and six through adoption. Our children were born here in the US, China, Korea, Haiti and Hong Kong. God put adoption on my heart when I was a little girl. I grew up in the Foursquare Church with my dad being a pastor. We often had missionaries in our home. The pictures of children that lived in orphanages where they ministered were permanently etched on my heart. :)
