You will have the opportunity to ask questions in this open and honest discussion.

  • Adopted a child domestically or internationally
  • Wondered what you should focus on first; Christianity or your child’s race/culture
  • Are raising a child who is a different race, culture, or ethnicity
  • Are curious about having friends and mentors for your trans-racially adopted child
  • Are wondering what you can do to help your child in their identity formation
