We hope you got to tune in this past weekend on CounselingWorksNow, new radio program through ChristianWorks for Children, and 100.7 KWRD. Guest speakers, Amy Monroe of IBC’s Tapestry Adoption and Foster Care Ministries, Melanie Chung-Sherman, LCSW, PLLC, CounselingWorks’ Adoption Triad Specialist, and Heather Ellis, LMSW, LCPAA, Director of AdoptionWorks, discussed the Common Questions and Challenges in Adoption. It’s amazing to know that the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex is home to one of the largest populations of adoptive families in the United States, showing how many of us have been touched by adoption in one way or another.
Since the beginning of this year, CounselingWorks has served several adoptive families, including adult adoptees, adoptive parents, adopted children, and birth parents through the Adoption Triad Counseling program. CounselingWorks is pleased to offer quality counseling services at an affordable cost to families and individuals, and especially now to members of the adoption community. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions about our Adoption Triad Counseling program.
In addition to Adoption Counseling, Tapestry Adoption and Foster Care Ministries through Irving Bible Church offers a variety of support programs to members of the adoption and foster care community. Be sure to check them out at http://tapestryministry.org/
You can never have too much support throughout the lifetime of your adoption journey. Support in the forms of counseling, church support, and friendships with other members of the adoption community are a vital help in navigating through the unique challenges that come with every adoption story. Hope to hear from you soon!
