Adoption and Social Media: What does it means for you and your adopted child/ren?

Social media has transformed all of our lives and adoption is no exception. 

The pace of social media uptake has led to an explosion of information, and the era of adoption secrecy and closed adoption is effectively over. Connections and meetings between adoptees and birthfamilies can occur without consultation, detectives, red tape, letters or intermediaries. It can be as simple as a Facebook search and message sent into cyberspace with a wish and prayer.

The question for everyone is how to manage (or leverage) these new tools, apps and channels in the best possible way for adoptive parents and for our children.

Presenter: Harriet Fancott is a web and social media specialist, and a writer. She and her husband have a 6.5 year-old son in an open adoption. 

Webinar Format: 1 hour on-demand webinar
