Respite, a short break for caregivers and their families, is an important support service for parents who have adopted a child. It is particularly important for families who adopt a child with developmental, health related, or emotional needs, or one who has experienced abuse or neglect. This fact sheet provides strategies to help respite providers and administrators, and Lifespan Respite grantees and their partners, address the needs of adoptive families using respite services. Families of adopted children should find useful resources as well.
