Adoption + Teens = Complicated: Helping Your Teen through Adolescence
Adoption adds a layer of complexity to the already confounding adolescent stages. As your adopted child becomes a teen, they may need more support and understanding from you. Learn to recognize your child’s changing needs as they explore their feelings around identity and origin, peers and their relationship with you, their parent.
