Adoptive Parents of Color Circle Gathering

Pact’s Adoptive Parents of Color Circle is open to all adoptive parents of color and their families whether they adopted through Pact or not—including families formed by foster-adoption, kinship adoption, international or domestic placement.

Join us for family gathering to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos.

Adoptive parents of color, let’s get together!


There will be food, fun activities, and crafts. Some of our amazing youth counselors will be on hand to facilitate games and activities for children and parents to enjoy together. We will also be launching our “Yes, We Do Adopt!” campaign by offering free family photos to remind the world that communities of color do support adoption.

Come ready to have an amazing family photo taken just in time for the holiday season!

Hosted By: Malaika Parker

Malaika Parker works with adoptive parents of color (and their parenting partners) to design resources and create community for same-race adoptive families. As an African American adoptive parent, she understands how hard-and important-it is for same-race adoptive parents to find resources that apply to their own family dynamics as opposed to those that apply to transracial families.

"As Pact's Family of Color Specialist and an African American adoptive mother myself, I want to introduce myself and invite you to join me in creating community around adoption for adoptive parents of color (and their parenting partners).  Too often adoption is seen as a second-best way to become a family. At Pact, we are looking at ways to support adoptive families of color better by providing safe spaces for discussion and growth that are specific to our experiences as people of color."
