Race and Adoption: A Panel Discussion

May 17 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

$30

Many families either have adopted a child or are considering adopting a child of another race, culture, and/or ethnicity. When taking into account the role of race in our society, this invariably raises questions and concerns. Many adoptive families begin this journey without the benefit of having had an opportunity to hear individuals (adult adoptees and adoptive parents) talk about their experience with transracial adoption. Panelists will share individual insights and experiences and respond to questions from the audience. Particular attention will be focused on assisting with understanding the kinds of cross-cultural issues that sometimes arise in these kinds of adoptions and things that parents can do to support their children to form a positive self-identity.
