Bonding with Baby
It's the moment you've dreamed of for months or years--time to welcome your new baby home! To make the most of those joyous first weeks and months together, see our special bonding section. You'll find baby-care basics, ideas for adoption showers and other family celebrations, and strategies to enhance attachment with your little one. You'll both fall in love before you know it.
Family rituals take on new meaning after we adopt a child. We might adapt traditions that have been passed through generations, or create new customs to mark the end of the adoption process. Read our collection of essays on the ways families come together to celebrate the meaningful events in our lives, at adoptivefamilies.com/rituals.
