Hello everyone and what a great winter support community we have had!
Last week Marlana Smith shared about Soul Care for the adopted/foster parent. Some books she recommended were The Deeply Formed Life by Rich Villodas, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzerp, and Spiritual Disciplines Handbook by Adele Calhoun.
This week Char Lanning will continue our discussion on social and emotional development with our adopted/foster kiddos. She will share about the pieces that are missing in an adopted child's life and identify some of those, and then springboard that into how the needs of adopted children will look different than biological children. Some recommended books on this topic are 20 Things Adopted Children Wished Their Parents Knew. The Whole Brain Child by Daniel Siegel, Connected Child by Karyn Purvis, Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp, Grief Recovery Handbook by John James, The Explosive Child by Ross Greene or Grace Cohen

We will meet at the Rockford campus, 6pm, room 421 (southwest nursery area, lower level)
