Event Description

Making the decision to parent a child of a different race than you is one that comes with many responsibilities. 

Whether you are a pre-adoptive parent considering transracial adoption or already parenting transracially we invite you to join our upcoming parent education training: Considerations in Transracial Adoption on Sunday, September 27 from 10A to 4:30P ET. During these all-day virtual workshops, adoption expert Dr. Nabina Liebow will provide the necessary tools to begin thinking about the obligations you have, as parents, to your transracially adopted children.

Register Now!

Upon completion of this workshop, parents should have a clearer idea of what they need to do to start their life long journey of fulfilling these obligations. We know that without ongoing critical thought, dialogue, and action with regard to these obligations, transracially adopted children can suffer psychologically. The goal of this class is to help parents get prepared to best enter into this journey. 

By attending you will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet other parents who are considering transracial parenting, or who are already parenting children of a different race than themselves
  • Explore the various reason that people choose a transracial adoption
  • Increase racial literacy & deepen understanding of race and racism
  • Understand parental obligations in transracial adoption
  • Make a game plan for “what’s next” as you continue to parent your child of color, or consider adopting a child of color

Don't miss this valuable opportunity and register today!

About the presenter:

Nabina.pngDr. Nabina Liebow is an international, transracial adoptee and ethicist.  She is passionate about her work in transracial adoption and ultimately hopes that attendees of the workshop can be exposed to tools for thinking, talking, and “feeling” about race;  will have the opportunity to better understand the perspective of transracial adoptees; will be pushed to examine their own racial perspectives, and ultimately will walk away with a better understanding of the obligations they have, as white parents, to their children of color.
