Abstract:   This session will articulate the practice principles of Alan Keith-Lucas on the integration of faith and practice, the valuing of birth families, the concepts of reality empathy and support as relevant in the adoption experience. The focus will be on the impact on faith of seeing oneself as a child of God, understanding God's valuing of substitute families and birth families and the use of Christ centered principles for managing challenging interactions. Participants will discuss closed and open adoption, the decision to search or not, principles for re-establishing contact and managing value differences. Practice tips and opportunities for discussion around the application of these principles will be included
