As a school professional being faced with various scenarios daily, it may be a challenge to have all of the answers when a student confides in you that she (or his girlfriend) is pregnant. If you are interested, our staff of Resource Specialists are happy to make a presentation about adoption to the students you work with. We invite you to contact us at any time for more information or to request this service. We are also available to answer any questions you and your students have over the phone at 1-800-762-8063.
For children who were adopted, are in foster care, or are living with a relative who’s not their biological parent, certain school assignments can trigger feelings of sadness or loss. The Coalition for Children, Youth & Families created this short video that will offer suggestions for alternative assignments that are inclusive for all students. We encourage you to view this video and share it with other parents and colleagues. If you have questions, please contact us; we are here to help.
