From the Desk of Lizzie: September 19, 2012

Hi Families,

Last Saturday, I was going through my Netflix and found a great documentary called, “This Emotional Life” from PBS.  It had a segment that discussed attachment and bonding, which is something many potential adoptive families ask and worry about.  One important thing to know about attachment and bonding (in relation to adoption) is that every child’s story is different.  Some children in orphanages might have bonding issues to overcome, but there are also children who crave love and healthy attention.  Early childhood is an important time for bonding, but attachments can be made and constantly improved throughout a child’s life!

I am happy to help families discuss their adoption options and give resources to assist with attachment and bonding.  GWCA/CAN is always here to support your family and adoption journey, so reach out to us today about any questions you may have:  512-323-9595 x3091

If you want to learn more about “This Emotional Life” and their information on attachment, you can read it here from PBS!
