Adoption is a beautiful thing, but anyone touched by it will be quick to point out that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies. The world of adoption is full to brimming with people in pain. Birth moms grieving the loss of the child they placed for adoption. Hopeful adoptive parents mourning over a failed or reversed placement. A child hurting from the loss of his or her first family. New adoptive parents struggling to help a child adapt to their home.
Chances are you know someone who is in pain, but it can be hard sometimes to know what you can do to help.
