Help Your Child Adjust Before Coming Home Tip #5

Taking as many pictures as possible in country, to begin their life book.

Transitioning to a new home takes time therefore it’s always good to create a life book for your child as a memory of where they came from and how they got here.

You don’t want to hide or keep their past away from them.  Creating a life book  of your child allows them to understand that they weren’t stolen or kidnapped from the orphanage, but see that you took the time to be with them while they were in the orphanage.

The life book will not only help remind them of their past, but allows them to see that you are in their future.  In which, allows them become adjusted and more attached to you.  By taking plenty of photos of you and your child at the orphanage and then showing them to your child will take out the shock that they are no longer living at the orphanage.

To learn more about attachment and bonding, we’ve created an online video that speaks of methods and ways to help you build a foundation with your child.  Click here to watch the video.

Stay tuned!  With Christmas approaching quickly, we want to remind you what you should consider before making plans for the holidays with your newly adopted child.
