Oasis is an online community started by adoptive, foster, and special needs parents offering video resources, educational content, mentoring, and a community forum.
While it says it is for adoptive moms, the resources at The Adoption Connection are for parents in general. Some are faith based, while others are not; much of the resources are based on the work of Dr. Karen Purvis and TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention). The podcasts are high quality and span relevant topics on adoption, trauma, and attachment.
