Helpful Online Info


The internet contains a wealth of information. You can watch a video, read an article or find a blog on pretty much any topic.

Adoption is no exception.

I don't always agree with everything I read, some stuff can be real head-shaking-news IMO. But I have read things that have made me feel normal. Like I'm not crazy or terrible or weird, I am just human.

Here is some online info I have found particularly interesting/helpful/calming:
