This workshop is designed for all families who have or are planning to adopt a child of another race. Some adoption agencies will accept this workshop as credit toward the home study requirements. Certificates will be issued upon request.

In choosing to become a trans-racial family through adoption, we accept the responsibility of opening our hearts and our lives to new ways of being.

Join us as we talk about:

  • What it means to be a “conspicuous family” – to parents and to children
  • How to talk about race and ethnicity with your children
  • Ways to incorporate a wide array of multiculturalism into your family
  • Strategies for helping to educate others in your life about what it means to be a trans-racial family.
  • Challenges of growing up as part of a trans-racial adoptive family and how parents can help

Speaker/Moderator: Stefani Moon M.A., is a Licensed Professional Counselor and the Program Manager for Open Arms Adoption Network’s North Jersey and New York offices. She facilitates Families Like Ours (FLO) a monthly support and resource group for Caucasian families parenting African American children.   . Adoption is both a professional and a personal passion for Stefani, as her two daughters joined her family through adoption.

This workshop includes the speaker, A Panel of adults who were adopted into transracial families and time for discussion.
