Families impacted by adoption who are considering a reunion need a lot of support. There are so many feelings that come up for every member of the constellation- Excitement, Loss, Abandonment, Fear, Nervousness, etc.- and we have been there. We've supported many families through successful reunions. Megan was 17 when she met her birth father for the first time. They've now been in reunion for over 20 years.
Our process when someone reaches out for support in this way is to understand the underlying reasons for seeking reunion. From there, we address the "what ifs" and help our client understand where they are emotionally before moving into the new relationship. We provide a lot of psychoeducation and support.
Please reach out and let us know how our experienced therapists can support your family through this process. We will work with birth families and adoptees both through the reunion.
