Recognizing that we live in a homophobic world, we want to create safe places where LGBTQ adoptive parents can find community and share strategies and information.

Online Affinity Group for LGBTQ Adoptive Parents of Children of Color

Recognizing that we live in a homophobic world, we want to create safe places where LGBTQ adoptive parents can find community and share strategies and information. This group is for LGBTQ adoptive parents with children of color (and those planning to adopt a child of color) as they navigate the specific challenges of adoption and race in an LGBTQ-headed family. Parents of all racial backgrounds are welcome.

About Online Affinity Groups: You are welcome to join more than one group. Pact staff members monitor but generally do not participate in parents' online discussions (except as parents themselves) unless comments are made that are inflammatory or violate Pact's principles (see Overview & Mission).
