Young Adoptees Speak January 12, 2022
Adoptees are the truest experts of their own experience which is why we must listen to what they have to say. Participants will watch a short film featuring adoptees, ages 10 to 17, as they speak about their experiences with and thoughts on race, first/birth families, adoption and more. The screening will be followed by a facilitated conversation that will include talking points and insights that can be used during discussions between children and parents. Gain insights from two adoptees, including Pact’s Youth Coordinator and Clinical Director. They will add insight to the moments in time captured in the film and contextualize their remarks in the lifelong evolution and process of understanding one’s adoption, and finding each individual’s path of identity reconciliation. Bring your questions and be prepared to be moved. This webinar is for all members of the adoption constellation and adoption professionals.
