LatinX Adoptee Voices April 01, 2020
Hear from adopted adults about their adoption journey including the role their first/birth parents/families have had in their lives and understanding of their own identity. Too often in the adoption field, the adoptee perspective is subordinated to that of the adoptive parent. Pact believes that adults with first-hand experience are the truest experts on that experience. The voices of Latinx adopted adults, born both domestically and internationally, will be featured. They will address issues including language, gendered narratives about Latinx cultures, the importance of ethnic-specific connections, culture-specific approaches to adoption and search (both transnational and domestic).
