Navigating Openness In Adoption: Where Is Your Family On The Journey?

Join Angela Tucker from The Adopted Life, Lori Holden, author of The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption, Kara Anderson, Amara Post Adoption Family Support Specialist and Katie Biron, Adoptive Parent as they dive deep in explaining what openness in adoption really means. This fast paced, interactive workshop will leave you reflecting on what level of openness your family has about adoption and perhaps more importantly, what level of openness your child needs you to have to support healthy identity development.

The Intersection of Transracial Adoption & Racial (in)Justice

Facilitated by Angela Tucker, transracial adoptee and Director of Amara’s Post-Adoption Services, this two-day workshop will provide a window into the nuanced first-hand narratives of adoptees through videos, anonymized case studies and Angela’s personal stories. This interactive workshop will leave you thinking about the role transracial adoption plays in our quest for racial justice in America.
