All of us need help at one time or another. Adoptive families are no different. Sometimes that support comes from professionals in the medical or adoption community such as doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and therapeutic support staff. Many times, just talking to or meeting with other adoptive parents who have had similar experiences may be helpful.
Below is a list of organizations you may contact that offer support to adoptive families:
Special Kids Network 1-800-986-4550: connects families to a variety of resources for their children.
Together as Adoptive Parents, Inc. (TAP) www.taplink.org – (215) 256-6438 or FAX (215) 256-0669. TAP provides adoptive families with information on therapists and tutors available to work with their child. Also serves as a resource for information on adoption assistance.
