Sample Activities for Adoption/Foster-care Communities

It’s not always easy to come up with fun ways to process the depth of our family stories.

The Iowa Foster and Adoptive Parents Association created an excellent 88-page workbook to help with that!

As a licensed clinical counselor and adoptee, I’ve compiled my favorite 20 pages for you into one printable PDF.

I’ve used them in sessions and they’ve inspired some incredible conversations around adoption, loss, grief, and hope for the future.

I think it serves as a great starter-pack, and you of course are free (and encouraged!) to add your own brilliant creative twist to each activity so that it applies to your particular family context.

Let me know if you have any questions!
