Are you the white parent of a transracially or internationally adopted child?
Join us Wednesday, November 17th on Instagram Live, as we launch our CASE Adoptee Author Series with author, thought leader, podcaster, and transracial adoptee, Melissa Guilda-Richards, as she discusses her brand new book What White Parents Should Know About Transracial Adoption: An Adoptee’s Perspective On Its History, Nuances, and Practices.
The White Fragility for transracial adoption-practical tools for nurturing identity, unlearning white savorism, and fixing the mistakes you don’t know you’re making. What White Parents Should Know About Transracial Adoption: An Adoptee’s Perspective On Its History, Nuances, and Practices breaks down the dynamics that frequently fly under the radar of the whitewashed, happily-ever-after adoption stories we hear so often. This book unpacks the mistakes you don’t even know you’re making and gives you the real-life tools to be the best parent you can be, to the child you love more than anything.
