After you've formed your family through adoption, there are still areas where additional learning and support may be needed. Parenting in general can be challenging, and parenting adopted children adds another layer of complexity. It is important to understand the impact that adoption has on both you and your child and how it changes throughout your child's lifetime.
Adoption Learning Partners offers courses for families parenting adopted children to learn how to sort through issues and learn new skills. Our courses address topics like talking to your child about adoption, helping your child cope with feelings of grief and loss, and answering questions about your child's heritage and background with sensitivity and respect.
We bring together a panel of adults adopted from Asia and parents who adopted transracially from Asia to talk about conversations they’ve had around culture, abandonment, homeland visits and more. They discuss the prejudice and significant rise in racism towards Asians since Covid-19 as well as the loss of identity that Asian children with White parents may experience.
