Asian Child-White Parent

In this webinar, The Cradle’s Our Children initiative brings together a panel of adoptive parents and adult adoptees who dive into some very real, often uncomfortable issues affecting Asian children with White parents.

They discuss the type of conversations parents are having with their Asian children at home around culture, abandonment, homeland visits and more. They talk about the prejudice and significant rise in racism toward Asians since the start of Covid-19. Finally, we discuss the identity loss that Asian children with White parents may experience.
