Rebecca Vahle is an adoptive mom and adoption professional. All three of her children were adopted as newborns/infants, which is supposed to be easier, right? These kids have no terrible history to overcome. What could be hard about that?
Rebecca shares what she’s learned over the years and offers many thoughts on how to support our kids including advocating for them with medical professionals and schools.
She also shares her work with Family to Family Support Network which educates hospital staff about adoption and the needs of the baby, birth family, and adoptive family in this unique situation.
She shares so many gems of wisdom, including the truth that adoption is a wedding and funeral happening at the same time. Grief and joy are entwined.
