Transracial adoption requires a different type of parenting. What must white adoptive parents keep in mind when raising black and Asian kids? In this course, we interview with Rhonda Roorda, author of In Their Voices: Black Americans on Transracial Adoption, and an adult transracial adoptee.
How do transracial adoptees develop a racial identity? How can parents help their transracially adopted children grow into strong heathy adults? In this course, Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support nonprofit, interviews Dr. Gina Samuels about how transracial adoptees navigate race as they age.
How can white parents raise children of color in this race-conscious world? In this course, Marguerite Wright, a psychologist for the Center for the Vulnerable Child at Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland, and author of I’m Chocolate, You’re Vanilla: Raising Healthy Black and Biracial Children in a Race-Conscious World, talks about the challenges of parenting a transracially adopted child.
The right way to raise a transracially adopted child is a hot-button issue. Our panel for this course are the real experts – adults of color who were adopted by white families. The panel consists of three transracial adoptees – black and white biracial, Asian and Hispanic – who discuss challenges they faced growing up, what their parents did right and what they wish their parents had known.
Transracial adoptions “works”, but what exactly can parents do to help ensure that their children will grow up happy and healthy with a well formed racial identity? Join our guests Beth Hall, Founder and Director of PACT, a multicultural adoption organization dedicated to addressing essential issues affecting adopted children of color, and co-author of Inside Transracial Adoption and Natasha Sky, a multiracial woman and mother of four young multiracial children who joined her family through birth and adoption. Natasha created the MultiracialSky website, a collection of resources for multiracial families.
