A Birthmother Speaks: Reframing and Normalizing Adoption in Communities of Color

This 90 minute session was recorded as part of the National Adoption Conference on September 22, 2021. You may register to take this session as a stand-alone course for $10. Once registered, you'll be redirected back to this page and you can click on the webinar title below to get started.

It is a point of fact that children of color are more likely to be placed in foster care and less likely to be placed directly into adoptive homes. In an interview format, our guest presenters examined the significant but less-often discussed historical and cultural factors that contribute to this phenomenon and present findings of focus group discussions with young women who share their views on adoption and how we can reframe community perceptions and attitudes. Renee Alexander, a birthmother at 16, shares her deeply personal adoption experience, and highlights how the complexities, decision-making and emotions around adoption transcend generational differences.

At this time, CEs are not available for this course. However, you will receive a training certificate upon completion of the course.
