If you have adopted a child of a different race than your own, how will you ensure that he grows up confident in his racial identity? How do you talk about racial differences? How do you respond when she faces racism at school, or from neighbors or extended family? How can you find role models for your child and friends for yourself who look like him? Beth Hall, co-author of Inside Transracial Adoption and founder of Pact, An Adoption Alliance, will lead a discussion about parenting a child adopted transracially, answering these questions and more.
Beth Hall is an adoption educator who, co-founded Pact, An Adoption Alliance, which is a multicultural adoption organization dedicated to addressing essential issues affecting adopted children of color.
