How will you help your child embrace and feel confident in his racial identity? Talk about race and racism? Find role models who will be able to provide first-person perspectives on race and culture? Join Beth Hall, co-author of Inside Transracial Adoption, to ask your questions.

The Adoptive FamiliesExpert Q&A Webinar: Inside Transracial Adoption will be held on Thursday, February 13, 2014 from 12PM to 1PM EST. Submit questions in advance by posting a comment below.

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.

Both of our boys are domestic adoptions with Caucasian BM and unknown BF (we can guess African American).  They both know they are biracial but heritage is unknown and they haven’t asked yet - they are 5 and 7.  At what point do we consider finding out their heritage (can this be done through a blood test)?  I am guessing my older son may have some Hispanic in him but am unsure.  Any suggestions for the unknown?
