Lifetime Adoption recently hosted a Q&A webinar all about transracial adoption. Joining us as webinar guests were three adoptive mothers who have adopted a baby through interracial adoption. If you’ve been thinking about adopting a child of a race different than your own, or if you’ve wondered how to talk about adoption with your future child, this panel of adoptive moms will be a helpful resource. The tips and experience of the adoptive parents in this special webinar will touch the hearts of anyone hoping to adopt transracially, or who’ve recently welcomed home a child through adoption.
Every hopeful adoptive parent will have to decide what preferences, or search criteria, to specify as they pursue a child through adoption. The best way to decide how to set those preferences is to learn as much as possible and to be confident that those preferences will lead to an opportunity adoptive parents will eagerly and comfortably accept.
There are questions any adoptive parent may face as they raise a child through adoption. The unique questions a child has about his or her adoption story should be embraced; a great way to prepare for those conversations or to become the parent your child needs is to learn from parents experienced with adoption.
