MN ADOPT Announces August Webinar!
Helping Adopted & Foster Youth Transition to Adult Living: A Parent’s Perspective
with Terssa Markworth, adoptive mother of 17 and bio-mother to four
Transitions are often difficult, especially for young teens moving into adulthood. Teenagers need time to gradually learn and practice adult life skills, such as finding a job, managing finances, applying to college and forming close relationships with others and the community. Some adopted and fostered teens need extra time, attention and encouragement from a support system.
Join MN ADOPT and Terssa Markworth, adoptive mother of 17 and bio-mother to four, as she offers suggestions to help your teen become confident with their own situation and abilities. Terssa shares how she and her husband continue to guide their adopted children into adulthood, while understanding the unique challenges adopted and foster children have faced from multiple placements, transitions and attachment delays.
Terssa Markworth and her husband of 25 years have adopted waiting children from Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa and South Korea. She is currently completing her Masters of Communication Studies at the University of South Dakota Vermillion. Terssa enjoys speaking to civic groups, churches and professionals about how adoption has framed her family of 21 children.
