Perspectives on Transracial Adoption

Perspectives on Transracial Adoption is an honest dialogue about some of the realities and complex issues that children adopted transracially may experience and how their parents can guide, support and prepare them.

Join us for a moderated panel of people who were transracially placed. Our panelists come from varied backgrounds. Some were adopted internationally while others were adopted as infants domestically or through the foster care system.

They will reflect back to their childhood as well as comment on their current feelings about being transracially adopted.

We will pose to the panelists YOUR questions such as:

  • When and how do I discuss race with my child?
  • What should I as a parent do to ensure connection with my child’s birth culture?
  • What did their adoptive parents do that helped them through the journey and what do they wish their parents had done?
