How adoption support services can help your new family adjust

New families of any kind go through changes they could never have imagined. Adoptive parents are no different. When the long adoption process is finally over, you might feel overwhelmed by the prospect of finally being a parent. You've probably heard it before, but it's worth saying again: There is nothing wrong with asking for help.

Keep reading to learn more about adoption support groups and other resources for adoptive parents in Florida.

Take advantage of local support groups

Groups across the state and country exist to help parties to an adoption adjust to the changes that come along with this process. Some tailor their services to only adoptive parents or only birth parents.  Many welcome both.

The Florida Department of Children and Families maintains a list of support groups for adoptive parents, including contact information. Local groups include:

  • Sylvia Thomas Center - Brandon
  • Children's Advocacy Center - Lakeland
  • Heart Gallery of Pinellas & Pasco - St. Petersburg
  • Calvary Chapel Worship Center - New Port Richey

Contact individual groups to learn more about their methods and how they might fit your needs.

Other resources for adoptive parents

Adopted children sometimes come from difficult circumstances. In some cases, your family might need the help of a professional. Luckily, there are mental health professionals throughout the state trained in helping adoptive families. You can also take advantage of expertise from Post Adoption Services Counselors through Community Based Care Lead Agencies.

Every family can benefit from a little help

It is always better to ask for help sooner, rather than later. Make the adoption process as smooth as possible by enlisting the help of those who have been there before.
