April 2, 2010, Newsletter Issue #184: Welcoming An Older Adopted Child Into Your Home

Tip of the Week

Older adopted children need a little extra effort on their behalf to feel at home in their new environment.  One way to do this is to give your child a grand tour of your home, being sure to point out where his/her personal space is:  sleeping arrangements, storage for personal belongings, and so forth.  An added touch would be displaying a photo of the child in a prominent place, such as with other family pictures on display.  This is a special way to help your newly adopted child feel that they truly belong in your family.
