Family Forum: Why Are the Holidays So Hard?

November 17 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Recommended Family Forums are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, and are intended to be a time of education, constructive dialogue, and support. Occasionally, topics of particular interest to families may also be discussed during a lunch hour forum.

All Recommended families will receive an email inviting them to register for upcoming Forums. Upon completing registration, the family will receive an email with the virtual GoTo Meeting link needed to access the meeting. If you are not Recommended with Indiana Adoption Program, but have recently adopted or are in the process of finalizing an adoption and would like to participate, please email your request to your local adoption consultant.

Why Are The Holidays So Hard? 

It’s almost here: the race to the end of the year, punctuated by shorter days; holiday celebrations; lots of food, family, and friends; and plenty of high expectations and opportunities for emotional upheaval. Wait…what? That doesn’t sound right…does it? Even for non-foster and adoptive families, the holidays can be a difficult time to power through. But for those of us whose families were made or added to through adoption – well, the highs and lows can feel even higher and lower.

We’ll spend time talking about managing the sometimes too-high expectations, creating new traditions that honor your child’s heritage and culture, and how to avoid some common pitfalls adoptive families often experience. Don’t worry – we’re not going to take all the fun out of the holiday season. Just the opposite, in fact!

All Recommended families will receive an email inviting them to register for upcoming Forums. If you are Recommended and have not received an email invitation, please contact us at iap@fireflyIN.org. If you are not Recommended with Indiana Adoption Program, but have recently adopted or are in the process of finalizing an adoption and would like to participate, please email your request to your local adoption consultant.
