Foundations for Growth Monthly Educational Series
Bringing Together the Worlds of Family-Building, Parenting, and Adoption
LET’S TALK ABOUT RACE, ETHNICITY, CULTURE AND GENETICS
Presented by Guylaine Brosmer, PhD, MSW, & Adoptive Mom
with generous support from Keith and Cecilia Teraski
Deciding to adopt a child who is from a different racial/ethnic background than yourself creates an added element of conversation, and sometimes challenges, to adoptive parenting. It also makes your family “stand out” to others, so it is important to prepare to navigate this beautiful, colorful world.
- How to decide if a transracial placement is right for us/me?
- Not being prejudiced is just the beginning of preparing for transracial adoption
- Find out how and why looks are important!
FREE, CERTIFICATES OF ATTENDANCE AVAILABLE. ADULT ONLY EVENT.
