Ukrainian Orphan Project (U.O.P.): Free Seminar

Hosting an Older Foreign Orphan: Benefits and Cultural Challenges
Free Seminar - Place and Time TBA

The growing number of cultural exchange programs bringing foreign orphans to the US opens new horizons for a unique "parent-child" pattern of cross-cultural interaction. It also creates new interaction opportunities for both prospective adoptive families and potential adoptees. But, positive parental intentions without understanding cross-cultural nuances may result in serious challenges and problems. This free seminar will be dedicated to some important psychological and cross-cultural orphan-related topics including but not be limited to:

  • Short-term hosting challenges vs. Post-adoption adjustments
  • Amount of freedom and love: orphanage vs. family
  • Social maturity vs. emotional immaturity
  • Language and communications nuances
  • Gifts and entertainment
  • "Squirrel" syndrome
  • Food challenges
  • Truth vs. lies issues
  • Around-the-home nuances
  • Discussing possible adoption
