Adoptive Parent Workshop


Includes access to your choice of one of my Masterclass trainings!

If you’re looking for guidance and restoration through the complexities of adoptive parenting, your hope is directly tied to the way you connect and learn with others in your community.

That’s where you’re headed with Campfire Workshop.

By the end of this training, my hope is you’ll have a heightened motivation to walk with your child through this journey, an increased awareness about their lived experience as it relates to adoption, race, culture and identity, and an expanded toolbox of support, skills, and fellow adoptive parents to call on today and for years to come.

This is a space for adoptive parents, wherever you are in the process (pre, post), extended family members, foster parents and family members, caregivers and friends at any age and stage to learn and dialogue about adoptees and the experiences we navigate throughout our lives (e.g., birth family, birth culture, loss/grief, identity development, emotional and behavioral processes, trauma and recovery, interpersonal relationships, healing and restoration)

Here’s what workshop members are saying about our time together:

“Opened the door to a whole new way of looking at transracial adoption for me.”

“The learning itself is invaluable, but the cohort model of learning with a group of fellow adoptive parents is really incredible.”

“I’ve enjoyed the atmosphere of non-judgement while we are all learning together. That all of us are at different stages but all relate to the immense learning we all have to do to support our kids.”

“All of it has been valuable and really well thought out. The variety of personal stories, dramatic representations and clinical insights is really well rounded.”

“Half the battle is finding constructive ways to talk about hard things. This workshop has provided just that. We are so grateful for this unique & gracious context!”

“Enjoying the discussions and hearing other adoptive parents experiences.”

“A solid beginning to understand the complexities of trans racial adoption. Thoughtful and well taught.”

“Every piece of the material has been incredibly beneficial! We are learning so much and having great dialogue about insight and application as we engage in the materials.”

“It’s not the typical adoption sit and listen/talk type of workshop.”

[impressed by] “Cam’s willingness to enter into our specific context without judgment in order to help us grow into newly forming perspectives.”

“Just super thankful that talking about these hard topics is being normalized in the group- the more we dialogue and verbalize thoughts on these topics so that talking about them with our kids and other adults in their lives will become easier.”

“This course has been incredible! I feel much better equipped to help my daughter navigate her feelings.”

“This workshop has made me more mindful as an adoptive parent to what our son may experience as he gets older and more mindful of how I can prepare myself as the one who gets to walk alongside of him.”

 Campfire Workshop is Accessible 100% Online.


No traffic. No waiting rooms. Just real, relevant, and refreshing time spent on your family with folks who get it.

Our curriculum includes:

Loss and Grief

Attachment and Relationships

Racial/ethnic Identity

The Understanding of Trauma

The overall complexities that come with separation from birth family and birth culture.


That’s real hard work, and we’re not here to let you off the hook. This is a deliberate time and space during your week.

“All of our assignments have benefited me greatly in one way or another.” -Workshop Participant, Fall 2019

What if our children needed us to take that time? What if they were counting on it? It’s a resource I wish my parents had.

Cam with Parents

I know your job is non-stop as you pour into your children. That’s why I take this time to pour energy, heart, and education back into you.


The curriculum is constantly evolving, including real-time relevant and controversial discussion topics as they happen day to day (click here to download a sample discussion). This content is also stable as I include core resources that speak directly from a clinical and adult adoptee perspective (curated and led by Cam, your trans-racial licensed clinical counselor).

I’m here to help you do your parenting job the best you can while feeling deeply refreshed, convicted and empowered along the way. 

I’m calling you in to send you out.

Will you show up?



This online caregiver workshop is hosted by Cam Lee Small, MS, LPCC, trans-racially adopted from Korea and founder of Therapy Redeemed.

Cohorts work together for 12 weeks; we meet online 6 times during that season.

The Campfire Workshop is a group of real people like you, committed to real and lasting growth, not just for themselves but for each other, their growing families, and the local needs in their communities to which they’ve been called to see and serve.


In this virtual cohort experience, you’ll find yourself among peers as we intelligently and compassionately address practical needs related to caring for a child on the adoption and permanency spectrum.

We’re going after love and truth that doesn’t just move a culture but serves it.


Isn’t it fascinating how campfires have a way of turning darkness to light? It’s a gathering place. Brief enough to hold our attention, warm and lasting enough to make a difference on a cool evening with friends.


Would you join us for our next season together?


Parent supported.
