Common Concerns of Birth Parents
General Stress Events History
All too often, people coping with adoption or infertility stress tend to forget that other stress factors are also taxing their decision-making and coping resources. Be realistic about getting help for yourself when you need support going through decisions and challenging situations; the results will be better than they would if you chose to "tough it out" yourself.
Obviously, no two stress factors are equal in their impact on any individual; the sum you derive here is merely a means through which you acknowledge how many other stressors you are managing alongside adoption or infertility treatment.
Place one check below for each stress event you have experienced within the past 3 years. Put the approximate date of that event in the space provided, and some brief details about the situation. If you need more room, write the item number on the back of this sheet and add more information.
