Supporting Your Biological Child

May 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Please join us for a workshop with Daniela Coats. Many foster and adoptive parents have questions surrounding the impact that foster care and adoption will have on their biological children. This presentation will examine the experiences of biological children, how to prepare them for the journey ahead, and ways to support them along the way.

Daniela Coats is a Licensed Master Social Worker in the state of Texas (Currently under the supervision of Suisan Walker, LCSW-S). Daniela is passionate about serving the entire foster family, including birth children.

Daniela is a self-identified “birth kid.” Her parents fostered when she was a child, and eventually adopted her youngest sibling. Having grown up in a home that fostered and adopted, Daniela was a temporary sibling to many children. Now, Daniela and her husband have six children – four through adoption and two by birth.

While Daniela has a variety of experience in social work contexts, she has spent most of her career working in foster care and adoption. Daniela is currently a therapist at Be Still Counseling and Consulting in Texas. She has developed trainings and resources for parents and professionals, and has contributed to professional writings on the subject.
