Built in Grace:
Learning to Do Better Together
Post-placement care because you shouldn’t have to face adoption’s unique challenges alone.
Adoption is a Life-long Journey
Adoptive families are often left to figure things out for themselves, scouring the internet for information, abandoned by the placing agency and feeling bewildered and alone. It shouldn’t be this way. That’s why we’re proud to be the first consultants to offer adoptive families ongoing post placement care.
The right knowledge, guidance and support can make it so much easier to navigate life’s challenges in a healthy way. Our post-placement care program provides you with a community of parents who understand what your family is facing, as well as what you need to do to continue to help your child grow and thrive.
