Guide To Bonding With Your Internationally Adopted Child

Written by a mom who has been there, done that, this guide by Susan Kuligowski will walk you through the basics of building a secure, lifelong attachment with your internationally adopted child, whether they were adopted as an infant or as a teen.

“International adoption is a complex journey that leaves many parents reaching for a nonexistent playbook after the dream has become a reality – one that now squirms in  your lap, looks into your eyes, and waits for you to make the first move.”

Topics include:

  • Finding Support
  • Educating yourself about what to expect.
  • Understanding your child’s background and perspective.
  • Recognizing when you or your child need extra support.
  • Creating a plan for creating bonds.
  • Recognizing the difference between bonding and attachment.
