Some students are exploring the idea of adoption. Some are trying to decide between the domestic and the international routes. Some are seeking information to calm their own fears and give them ways to explain OA to friends and family members. And some are actively working on their adoption profiles.
Distance was a problem for people who don’t live in the Denver-metro area.
We have remedied that. Crystal and I are now available for 2-on-2 consulting about developing a healthy open adoption, either in person (in the metro-Denver area) or by phone. And we’re cheap very affordable.
Here is a description of the session, written by a woman who attended our class and said that seeing our relationship at work was very helpful in de-freakifying open adoption:
When considering adoption, many couples don’t know where to start: It’s sometimes hard even knowing what questions to ask. In a setting that is one part classroom, one part coaching session, and one part storytelling, two mothers in an open adoption share their insights and experiences. You’ll begin with a focus on the differences between open adoptions and closed adoptions—for parents and for children—and explore practical and emotional issues related to open adoption. Specific topics covered include 20 questions to ask before you select an agency, how to minimize the pitfalls along the way, steps to ensure an ethical open adoption, and secrets of successful open adoptions.
Your phone or coffee-shop session will be co-created by the four of us. We each lead and follow as Crystal and I (1) share with you what we have experienced and built; and (2) answer your questions.
Our consulting fee is just $1 a minute, with a 30 minute minimum.
One couple who attended our class had this to say.
