Education and Training

Many people believe that raising a child is something that is done by instinct and that all you need is love.  Some believe that successful parenting techniques can be applied to all children.  However, parenting a child of adoption is vastly different from parenting a birth child.  Pre-adoptive training helps parents understand the issues related to children who have been adopted, including abandonment, cultural differences, and family definitions

Madison Adoption Associates guides families through comprehensive and situation-specific training to help you be prepared for the many questions, challenges, and rewards surrounding the adoption of your child.  We strongly encourage families to seek assistance – before, during and after the adoption as needed to address any concerns.
