Families with Children from China introduces Let’s Talk: Cross Cultural Adoption
Terra Trevor, of Cherokee, Delaware, Seneca ancestry, frequently writes on the topics of motherhood, transracial adoption, culture, ethnicity, her identity as a mixed blood, as well as the experience of raising a child with a life-threatening illness and the process of healing from the death of a child. She is hailed for her insight, candor, lyric prose and sincere voice. The title of the workshop/session she will be presenting is: “Evolution of Adoptive Parent Identity: The Crossroads of Transracial Parenting.”
Please join us for a talk by her plus a panel discussion with adult adoptees. Families who have completed a transracial adoption from another country or from the United States are encouraged to attend. In addition, families who are in the process of a transracial adoption are also welcome to attend.
This workshop will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at the White Station Church of Christ, 1106 Colonial Road, Memphis. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m.
Childcare (ages 1 and up) and light refreshments will be provided courtesy of Agape and the Adoption Support Center. Childcare for two children is included in the registration fee. The cost for additional children is $5 each.
