Becoming a Transracial Adoptive Family
August 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Adopting a child of a different race presents unique complexities for a family. Transracial families will share their experiences and topics such as community, celebrating their heritage and racism will be discussed. The seminar will also help waiting families understand how the adoptee’s identity changes as they age and how to address the child’s questions and concerns with age appropriate answers.
