Transracial adoption and adopting across racial lines Pact doesn’t subscribe to the "colorblind" or "love is enough" approach—we believe that race matters, and that parents who are adopting across racial lines must commit to making changes in their own lives to support their children. Topics include parenting strategies, international adoption, building racial identity, and transracial adoption.

Pact offers support for adoptive parents who have already adopted (or are considering adopting) across racial lines through our online chat groups, our educational workshops and conferences, our nationally acclaimed Pact Family Camp, one-on-one consultations focused on the special issues inherent to transracial/transnational parenting, and regional parent-organized affiliates in Northern California, Southern California, and throughout the U.S. Become a member of Pact to take advantage of all these resources and to receive our newsletter, Pact’s Point of View, which features many articles on the intersection of adoption, parenting, and race. Pact members receive a discount at our online bookstore, which features great reads on this topic carefully selected for both adults and kids of all ages. We also recommend blogs and other online resources that we believe have the very best advice and information for adoptive families of children of color about adoption, race, and parenting.
