When adoption processes and practices are ethical, parents and professionals are informed, and children are at the center, the extended family of adoption can be a model for a truly evolved definition of family. A lack of uniform laws, regulations and consistent standards, coupled with a lack of education, can leave everyone in the extended family of adoption unprepared and vulnerable, including children, parents and professionals. After decades of research, passionate advocacy and practical experiences - why haven’t policies and practices on behalf of children and families moved far enough and fast enough?
Join us for a conversation with April Dinwoodie, Chief Executive of The Donaldson Adoption Institute, Inc. and a transracially-adopted person, as she explores how a modern understanding of adoption, more education, and collective action can ultimately strengthen all families.
