Transracial Adoption Resources

Transracial Adoption Resources

Learning about and discussing race has gotten a lot of attention over the last year, but those who have multiracial families know that this has always been an important topic. Research shows that children need to see others who look like them in the world around them. This includes in television and movies, books and magazines, and in their home and community. Having adults to look up to who look like you can be inspiring in powerful ways that we can’t imagine and maybe don’t realize if you always had that when you were growing up.

It is never too late to start learning together as a multiracial family. As a matter of fact, learning about race is a lifelong process. We know this can be an overwhelming task if you don’t know where to start, so we have included a variety of resources below to get you started. For more ideas shared by multiracial adoptive families and additional resources check out our previous blog post, 15 Tips for Transracial Adoption.
