Last Saturday, I was going through my Netflix and found a great documentary called, “This Emotional Life” from PBS. It had a segment that discussed attachment and bonding, which is something many potential adoptive families ask and worry about. One important thing to know about attachment and bonding (in relation to adoption) is that every child’s story is different. Some children in orphanages might have bonding issues to overcome, but there are also children who crave love and healthy attention. Early childhood is an important time for bonding, but attachments can be made and constantly improved throughout a child’s life!
I am happy to help families discuss their adoption options and give resources to assist with attachment and bonding. GWCA/CAN is always here to support your family and adoption journey, so reach out to us today about any questions you may have: 512-323-9595 x3091
If you want to learn more about “This Emotional Life” and their information on attachment, you can read it here from PBS!

China | 3 years old | Girl
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
