Trainer:   Rhonda Roorda, MA
Location:   Center for Adoption Support & Education (C.A.S.E)--WEBINAR

Transracial Adoptions, especially involving white parents adopting children of color, are increasing in the U.S. With the popularity of the TV show This Is Us, and the creative work by and for adult Transracial Adoptees, this phenomenon is grabbing the interest of mainstream society and shining a light on the complexities of raising children of color in white homes.

In this webinar, Author and International Speaker, Rhonda Roorda will provide a brief overview of the history of Transracial Adoption in the U.S., specifically as it relates to black and biracial children raised by white parents and speak on the controversy that ignited the debate on this important topic.

Through the sharing of her own story, and the stories of the adult adoptees, adoptive parents, and non-adopted siblings featured in the Simon-Roorda trilogy of books on Transracial Adoption, the challenges and strengths of this practice will emerge.

In culmination to these amazing voices, Rhonda will discuss the major themes in her latest award-winning book, In Their Voices: Black Americans on Transracial Adoption and help reimagine a more robust and flexible way to support families touched by Transracial Adoption.

The goal of this presentation is to help foster and adoptive parents, child welfare and mental health professionals look at Transracial Adoption holistically in order to build healthy Transracial Adoptive families of all combinations.
