Over the past week I have been reminded through multiple conversations with folks of the great need for resources for adoptive parents dealing with attachment issues. In the past adoptive and foster parents felt alone. Thankfully, that is changing. One of the best resources I know of and am thankful to be able to point folks too is Dr. Karyn Purvis. Her summer camps for adoptive families and her book The Connected Child have been a great help to many families.
Today is the launch of a new website compiling Dr. Purvis work and other helpful articles by adoptive parents and adoption advocates, Michael and Amy Monroe. Please check it out.
[My good friend and fellow adoptive dad, Matt Donovan, did a superb job on the site too!]
