Are you wondering how to show your support for an adoptive family? If you aren’t familiar with adoption from other friends or family members, you might wonder what is the best way to help and support that new family. In some ways, bringing home a child through adoption is very similar to bringing home a baby from the hospital, but, in other ways, it is different. Here are five ways to support a family in your life that is adopting. 1. EVERYONE HAS TO EAT Before the new arrival comes home, drop by some meals that can be frozen and served for their first few days as a new family. Those first few days (and even weeks) are critical and are often best done without a lot of guests because visitors can be too stimulating and confusing to the new family member. By dropping by meals before the family departs to pick up their new addition, you are giving them breathing room to seek only what they need in those first precious days home.
