You have adopted and now reality is setting in. Destiny Adoption Services will help you during the transitionary period of becoming a new family. The first meeting with the birth parents or when the questions from your child begin. Destiny Adoption Services is available to walk you through the next steps until you are confident and secure in your family.
We also offer counselling specific for children to help them understand and put words to the emotions they may be experiencing. Older adopted children may present symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, insomnia, stress and other behavioural issues. The book Our Chosen Child – Talking to Children About Inter-Cultural Adoption is a wonderful tool in helping your child express their feelings. There is a guide at the back of the book that will assist in the parenting of your adopted child.
