Expert Q&A Webinar: Parenting in Transracial Adoption
When you adopt across racial lines, whether domestically or internationally, it takes more than just love and good intentions to raise a child with a positive sense of racial identity. Parents may wonder what life will be like as a conspicuous family, how to start teaching their child about his birth culture, how to find role models of their child's race, what resources exist for transracial families, how to deal with and prepare their child for racism, and more. Join transracial adoption expert Deborah H. Johnson to ask any questions you have during Adoptive Families' Expert Q&A Webinar: Parenting in Transracial Adoption on April 10, 2013 from 1PM to 2PM EDT. Submit questions in advance by posting a comment below. (We will ask the expert as many questions as possible during the webinar, but we can't guarantee that any question, whether submitted in advance or during the webinar, will be answered.)
Deborah H. Johnson is a Korean American adoptee and mother of two adult children. She has been an adoption professional for more 25 years, working with adoptive families and adoptees in a variety of pre- and post-adoption settings. Deborah is a nationally known presenter and has been a frequent contributor to Adoptive Families magazine. She is currently CEO and Director of Programs for the heritage travel company Kindred Journeys International.
