“Why don’t you look like your mom?” “Why did your real parents give you away?” Kids and teens ask tough questions; those questions can be especially challenging to answer when they center on a child’s adoption. For almost 20 years, the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) has set the standard in providing mental health counseling, educational resources, guidance and support to kids, teens and families across the foster and adoption communities, locally and nationwide.
C.A.S.E. envisions that everyone touched by adoption and foster care has access to the adoption-competent support necessary to navigate their life-long journey. Children, teens and families face unique emotional and behavioral challenges that stem from pre- and post-adoption experiences. With early intervention, they can address and overcome these challenges.
C.A.S.E. has 5 locations including their office here in Annandale. They offer specialized therapy for expectant parents, birth parents, prospective and waiting adoptive parents, kinship families, and adoptive and foster children, teens and their families. This amazing organization helps hundreds of families each year, regardless of their ability to pay. Together we can nurture, inspire and empower families to thrive.
