When you are 
NOT your child’s first mom…

You need…   

What about my child’s “Real mom” you ask?
…Well, That would be me. 
Fielding awkward questions is just the tip of the iceberg…

If you are...

  • Missing the you that you used to be…
  • Feeling Isolated & Unsupported/under-supported…
  • Experiencing Distress over Your Adopted Teen's Extreme Behaviors…
  • All Out of Options After Trying (Almost) Everything…
  • Just ready to be DONE With the Disrespect & DRAMA...

You're in the right place!

Hey there, I'm Dawn Baggett - 
I want to introduce you to an in-depth program to help you uncover past successes which have led to your present role as second mom, as you learn and implement success strategies for quick successes in current challenges in your non-traditional mom role and craft a plan for continued success going forward.

You've never seen anything like this before!

An adoptive mom who has spent years not only studying, but living the life of a second mom in a complex family, I learned that there are commonalities among this population and that the gap in support is something that is all too prevalent for many moms and families. Especially as a Christian mom who poured myself into my family, used to problem-solving and searching & finding whatever was needed, set high expectations for myself, and had a good track record as a parent, the lack of resources and anti-support for the mounting challenges in my adoptive family felt unreal.  Then I learned…It wasn’t just me! And it’s not just you & your family either.  


Adoption is not a magic wand. 

Whole families are being left to flounder with predictable struggles that often come with mid-to-severe attachment challenged children with a history of developmental trauma in early childhood, especially as those children reach their early teen years.

•In the gap, marriages often fall apart under the strain
•In the gap, moms often bear an enormous degree of opposition & aggression which gets more dangerous as their children age
•In the gap, outsiders frequently experience a very different child than the family at home, especially mom
•In the gap, trying to use traditional parenting methods & general parenting advice that work well for regular households is insufficient & can even backfire
•In the gap,  traditional family settings are unsustainable with some children with severe attachment challenges
•In the gap moms can feel like prisoners in their own homes 
•In the gap moms may be at risk for PTSD, compassion fatigue, 
and worse…

And yet as a parent…this mom feels the blame and shame when her child doesn’t fit the traditional family mold; when she’s made adjustment after adjustment to fit the family & home environment around the increasingly difficult behaviors of this growing child. 

And she seeks help…but finds 

Rather than the needed help & understanding she receives blame;
She is either blown off when things aren’t bad enough…
…or vilified when things get too bad. 

The Success For Second Moms program helps to fill that GAP...

The Success for Second Moms 12-week program:

Safety, Sanity & Skills for your Non-Traditional Mom Role

This one-of-a-kind program is designed  for adoptive moms and step-moms, those of us who are raising children who came to us sometime after birth. 

Whether it’s your toddler who won’t let you comfort him, your elementary aged child who roams the house at night for  “treasures”, your preteen hoarding food in her room, or your teen who’s verbally and physically aggressive to you…or a host of other behaviors, I get it.

My best clients have the following traits:
  • coachability
  • Growth mindset.
  • Open & excited to grow, change, learn, try
  • Commitment and willingness to do the work.
  • Faith in God, and excited to grow in their own faith journey.
  • Resourcefulness

My best clients won’t have the following traits:
  • “My way” or “already know it all” mindset.
  • Not coachable, not receptive
  • Not resourceful.
  • Not committed enough to make hard or necessary changes.
  • Unwilling to choose faith over fear, or faith over the familiar.
In short, my best clients are Christian women who recognize they aren’t perfect and are eager to take their next steps in a faith-growth journey that they are committed to travel. Does this describe you?

I designed this program for you — to fill the GAP that I've experienced first-hand as a Christian adoptive mom committed to my faith and to my family.
