We are just a few days away from The Barker Foundation’s 70th Annual Conference: The Commitment of a Lifetime! Project Wait No Longer is excited to announce a very special breakout session “Keys to Successful Older Child Adoption: The Story of An Adoptive Mother and Support Worker”.

This workshop prepares families to meet the challenges of raising children of adoption who have been traumatized. A key component of this workshop is the concept that parents are the key to a successful adoption, not the children. Parents will be given tools to support and love their children in the process of healing, rather than trying to “fix” them. By presenters: Lisa Highfield and Christen Shepherd. 

Lisa High Field and Christen Shepherd are also authors of the book “The Promise” which is available here:
