Adoptive Friends and Families of Greater Seattle (AFFGS) invites you and your family to join us for a Transracial Adoption Workshop presented by transracial adoptee and transracial adoption coach Chad Goller-Sojourner. During this two-hour workshop, Mr. Goller-Sojourner will:
-Prepare prospective adoptive
parents to better understand and appreciate all that comes with adopting and raising a transracial child.
-Help prospective adoptive parents make a more informed decision as to whether transracial adoption is right for them
-Help prospective adoptive parents understand whether they, their family, and their environment are the right fit for a child of a different race
-Equip transracial adoptive parents with age-appropriate insight, suggestions, and tools for developing healthy same-race identities in young children
-Provide transition-specific tools and suggestions for those adopting older children transracially
