Adoptive parents gettogether-more to adoption

How to talk about adoption with adoptive child?
How to talk about adoption with adoptive child?

Finding a home/family, though a very important milestone in the rehabilitation of an abandoned child, is  nevertheless, only the beginning of a process- one  that calls for care and guidance in bringing up the child. Invariably confronted with the question of ‘identity of the child’, how the fact of adoption is to be shared, handling  adolescence,  and most importantly, the search for roots,  aparents seek opportunities to share  experiences, exchange views and receive expert guidance  from professionals.

Catalysts for Social Action being the channel for a family for every child, we realize that only the child reaching to the family is not enough; post-adoption issues need to be addressed particularly since many Indian Aparents are still inclined to be secretive about the fact of adoption.

 Adoption Awareness Week is celebrated internationally during the week 14th Nov. to 21st Nov. Using the opportunity, we organized an AParents’ Get-together in Bangalore. For us,  Bangalore is a unique choice of location since 52 children from rural Odisha and Maharashtra, have found homes in Bangalore. Also, Vathsalya Charitable Trust-one of the best Adoption agencies and our “Friend-in-need” agreed to join hands with us in this initiative. Mary Paul from Vathsalya Charitable Trust and  Brajesh Mishra,  CSA Managing Committee member and an adoptive aparent himself, moderated the day’s discussions.

The highlight of the day was  the presence of the adopted children who had also, been invited. Those happy faces reflected the transition from orphanage life to family life. For us, that was the key motivator! And of course, the parents were delighted!
