Post Adoption for Adopted Teens

The period when an adopted child reaches the teenage years can at times prove challenging.

A child that has been adopted from a young age, prior to adolescence, will be curious about their adoption when they get to a certain age and may ask questions about the circumstances that led to their adoption.

They may ask for details about their birth families, and wonder what led to their adoption. Most children will have a life story book which parents are encouraged to use to explain their adoption journey within the family from a young age.
