This week, we talk with Laura Adams, founder of, which provides education, support, and advocacy to improve understanding of adoptive and foster children and complex trauma. Laura explains how through her work with international adoption and parenting her own adopted children with special needs, she saw firsthand the challenges that exist in getting the proper assessments and support in schools, especially in mental healthcare. Laura is an advocate for attachment-based interventions and today works to transform school social work to provide better outcomes for adopted and foster children.
