Resources for families post-adoption

Once a forever family is formed, that bond is unbreakable. However, we understand that raising children who have experienced trauma can provide it’s own unique experiences and challenges.

Embrace Families provides resources, guidance and counseling to families following their adoption. Our goal is to provide a smooth transition as forever families are formed, and on an ongoing basis as they continue to work through the joys and challenges of parenting a child who has experienced trauma. Check-ins take place regularly throughout the first year and services are available until the child’s 18th birthday.

Our post-adoption services team links adoptive parents with those provider partners in our network who are able to best meet their needs. These services include, but are not limited to:

  • Immediate in-home crisis intervention services
  • In-home behavior analysis
  • In-home parenting consultation
  • Psychological, developmental, educational or medical evaluations not otherwise covered by Medicaid
  • Specialized counseling for the child and/or family

There are post adoption support groups available to those interested in engaging with other families who have adopted from the foster care system.

Contact Ashleigh Johnson for information on how to join a support group.  Email Simone Aldrich to inquire about receiving post-adoption services.
