Becoming a Transracial Adoptive Family

October 13, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The seminar, led by Joanne Bratta, RN, BSN, MS, adoption professional and Executive Director of St. Mary’s Services, will lead a panel discussion to teach how transracial adoptive families get to experience the joy of parenting in their own special way. Transracial families will share their experiences, and help parents learn how to respond to intrusive comments and questions in different ways. The seminar also will help parents understand how the adoptee’s identity changes as the adoptee ages and how to address the child’s questions and concerns with age appropriate answers.
