Webinar: Adoptee Voices
Pact believes that adopted people are the truest experts of their own experience. Yet, the adoptee perspective is too often subordinated to that of the adoptive parent. In this webinar, participants will hear from adopted adults of color as they share parts of their adoption journey including the role their first/birth parents and families have had in their lives, in understanding their own identity and what they believe is important for adoptive parents to know. They will address issues including open adoption, talking about adoption, first/birth family, challenges of adoption and more. Featured speakers were adopted domestically and internationally, into both transracial and same-race placements. This webinar is for all members of the adoption constellation and adoption professionals.
