The Impact of Transnational Adoption
May 7, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
There are many ways to start a family and one of the increasingly common ways is adoption, specifically transnational adoption. This is when a child from another country is adopted and brought to the US to be raised by people who are not their ethnicity, frequently white, middle-class Americans. There are many impacts of transnational adoption, not only on the adoptee, but also how society views adoption and common misconceptions of adoption. Come to this panel discussion to learn about how to be a positive adoptee supporter and identity formation for adoptees along with a time at the end for any additional questions.
