Counselling is useful. Child prefers one parent over the other. Art therapy is great.
Adopted children from an orphanage have many life experiences that you can’t take away. African children have seen acts of violence. Parents don’t realize. Learn as much as you can about the place that the child comes from. Also think as a child.
