It is important for prospective and adoptive parents parenting black and brown children to support their adoptive child's racial identity development by learning how to have hard conversations and help them build resiliency. Plan to join us on Wednesday, August 11, from 7P to 8:30P ET for a powerful workshop: Raising Black Boys and Girls. Transracial adoption has many complexities, one of which is racial identity development support for adoptees. In this presentation, Isaac will share his personal, racial identity journey and provide attendees with guidance on how they can come alongside and support their adoptive child's racial identity development.
