Understanding the Impact of Birth Order

July 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Foster and adoptive parents often wonder about birth order in relation to fostering or adopting when they already have children by birth. This presentation will examine the significance of birth order, and encourage participants to consider how it relates to birth/existing kids in foster and adoptive families.

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.

Closed Captioning will be available once the webinar begins.
