      Sunny Ridge Family Center | 270 Remington Blvd. Suite C | Bolingbrook, IL

      Okay, so the honeymoon is over ... and now you may be saying:

      • Did we really sign up for this? Why didn’t anyone tell us about this?
      • Should I let my child "cry it out"?
      • Is it too early to say "no" to my child?
      • What about the screaming tantrums, biting, food issues?
      • Is my child sleeping/growing as they should?
      • How do I address the bedwetting and potty training issues?
      • Are other adoptive parents feeling the way I do?

      Sunny Ridge Family Center and the University of Chicago Adoption Center invite all adoptive families who have received an international placement in the last two years, to an informal, supportive, and encouraging place to connect with other newly adoptive families. Child care will be available for a nominal fee, so please let us know your needs when registering.

      Bring the family and a dessert to pass, and join us for "(More Than) Just Dessert" — a free evening of conversation and connection.
