blended families in adoption Blended families in adoption are defined as families in which children born to their parents are raised in the same family with adopted siblings. Personal stories from non-adopted siblings, adoptees, and parents explore the differences and similarities between children in the same families with different experiences and different needs. Answers to the question “who are the real parents” and “who are your real brothers and sisters” are explored.

Pact offers pre-placement consultations and placement services for prospective parents who are looking to adopt a child of color as their first choice. We also offer support for adoptive parents who have already adopted (or are considering adopting) children of color through our online chat groups, our educational workshops and conferences, our nationally acclaimed Pact Family Camp (at which non-adopted siblings are welcome), one-on-one consultations focused on the special issues inherent to adoptive 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 adoption 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.
