After couples bring home their baby through adoption, brand-new adoptive parents face a variety of emotions as they adapt to life with a baby or new child. On top of this is a new relationship with their child’s birth mother. Many adoptive parents share that they feel relieved during this time, but others feel a sort of let-down.

For many adoptive moms, they feel intense pressure to be the perfect parent who knows all and has everything in her control. In Monday’s webinar, we’ll get an insider’s look “beyond the blessing” from author and adoptive mom Mardie Caldwell. Mardie is going to share secrets and stories from her first days as a new adoptive mom.
