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.
The Adoptive Families Parenting After Transracial Adoption Webinar with Beth Hall took place on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, at 1pm ET.
Beth Hall is the co-author, with Gail Steinberg, of Inside Transracial Adoption: Strength-based, Culture-sensitizing Parenting Strategies for Inter-Country or Domestic Adoption Families That Don’t Match. Hall and Steinberg also co-founded Pact, An Adoption Alliance, which provides education, support, and placement services for birth parents, adoptive families, and children of color. Hall is the white adoptive mother of a Latina daughter and an African American son (both now young adults), and grew up with an adopted sister.
