Heather is a mother of 2, married to her husband 16 years. Her 1st was adopted through an intercountry adoption as a new infant. She is now a 7 year old in Grade 2. The family lives in rural SK & enjoys the outdoors together, among other things. The journey has been different than expected but have found some great support & friends along the way.
The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan provides pre- and post-adoption support services, including consultation, education, resources and more. ASCS provides these supports and programs to adoptive families, adoptees, birth parents, birth families and professionals. When adoption becomes the plan for a child, ASCS believes the child’s best interests are met when families are well-equipped with a broad understanding of adoption and the issues that may arise along the journey. Knowing what resources are available to support the child throughout their life within an adoptive family is essential from the start.
