An adoption Lifebook, or adoption storybook, is a handmade scrapbook and keepsake that chronicles and illustrates a child’s journey to his or her adoptive home. It is used as a source of information as well as a way to open up the discussion of adoption with a child. Creating a Lifebook can feel daunting to some parents and many benefit from scheduling a dedicated time to work on the book with other parents. By working side by side on their child’s Lifebook, parents can brainstorm ideas and support each other’s creative process. They can also practice answering difficult questions with other adoptive parents and gain support normalizing the emotional issues they may face when looking at the book with their child. Facilitated by Andrea Pinkerton, PsyD. and adult adoptee, this eight-session series meets on Tuesday evenings starting on Sep. 13. from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.Dates: Sep. 13, Sep. 27, Oct. 25, Nov. 1, Nov. 8, Nov. 29, Dec. 6, and Dec. 13, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.If you have questions please contact Robin Ratner, MSW: (707) 303-1509.
