You want to:

  • change your life?

Adopt a child

You want to

  • change your life,

  • change your belief system,

  • change your perception of the world,

  • change your relationship with those around you,

  • change your relationship with minorities,

  • change your cultural experiences,

  • change your ability to communicate without malice,

  • change your ability to empathize,

  • change your need to self-examine personal motivations

  • change your ability to advocate?

Adopt a child of another race.

 

If you are planning to adopt a child of another race, you will have to change more than just creating a nursery out of the extra room.

Change requires you to embrace diversity in every possible way. If you want to keep your child safe, you will need to understand how race functions in our society.

This is not written to discourage you in this decision. This is said in way of full disclosure.

Transracial adoptions are complicated.

They are also glorious.

There are incredible sacrifices. There are also incredible rewards.

Contact us if this is something you have considered.

Birthmothers,

we recognize adoptive parents will need your help. This is why we advocate for open adoptions. That is why we vet adoptive parents who are capable of taking on the responsibility of embracing the diversity necessary to successfully help your child reach their full potential.

    I just adopted a part black teen, she’s been a breath of fresh air and revitalized my life!
    I’ve raised a Japanese/Korean young lady. It’s been a great experience so I’m all for this and encourage interracial adoption for those open minded and not afraid of change!

      I am so happy to hear these positive experiences. I love the fact you say “not afraid of change.”
