Excellent Transracial Adoption Resource

When we started the process four years ago, it seemed like there weren’t a lot of resources to help us as we became a transracial family. Thankfully that’s changing. One of my recent Internet searches yield this site: www.ifapa.org/resources/cultural_resources.asp

Yes, it’s the Iowa Foster and Adoptive Parents Association but it has some PDFs that can be beneficial no matter where you live. The Cultural Resources page is my favorite part of the site, which is why I’ve linked to it. On it you’ll find a PDF booklet titled “Transracial Parenting in Foster Care and Adoption: Strengthening Your Bicultural Family.” It’s a 48-page guide book that you can print to help you on your transracial parenting journey.

The Cultural Resources page also has links and information about other resources that transracial families can use. Resources are listed for families with African American children, Asian children, and Latino children.

And if you feel you’re creatively challenged when it comes to creating a lifebook for your child, this site has 70 free pages that parents can print and use. You can print the whole book in either English or Spanish, or you can print out individual pages that most relate to your child’s story.

I was so excited to find this resource. I hope it helps you on your journey.
