Respite Care

For families with children from hard places, skilled, consistent respite care provides parents an essential, worry-free rest from therapeutic parenting,  and provides children a community of support for their forever family, within which they can heal.


Respite Provider Training

Consistent respite care is a vital component of the healing attachment process between child and parent. For the most sustainable plan, we highly recommend adoptive families prayerfully recruit their own respite care team among friends, church family, and extended family members.

We are honored to provide online training for these very important members of the healing team!
