Transracial adoption is such a huge topic to cover, so I wanted to bring Rachel Garlinghouse back on the show. She was our amazing guest back in episode 31.

Rachel is a gifted writer, a blogger, and most importantly – a mom of 3 from transracial, open adoptions. She is (in her own words) crazy passionate about transracial adoption. She has written several books, including:

Rachel has written for a ton of big names – including Essence Magazine, ABCNews.com, HuffingtonPost, and Adoptive Families Magazine. She also wrote an amazing guest post right here on the InfantAdoptionGuide blog called 5 Things to Consider Before Adopting Transracially.

You can learn more about Rachel and follow her blog at: WhiteSugarBrownSugar.comShe will open your eyes to what it’s like to adopt a child from a different race than yours.

This show is extra special, because we asked thousands of adoptive families on several Facebook support groups what they wanted to know about transracial adoption, especially from an adoptive parent’s point of view.

The responses from all over Facebook show us that we really need to keep talking about transracial adoption – and provide support for each other. By the way – if you are interested, I’ve added links to several domestic adoption support Facebook groups below.

So this episode is entirely devoted to answering questions from people who want to know more about transracial adoption – directly from a mom.

Our hope and prayer is that this episode will provide inspiration to those hopeful adoptive families who are pursuing their dream of building their family through infant adoption.

What you will learn about in this episode:

  • Hear the answer to the question “How do you deal with the stares & dumb questions when in public?”
  • Listen to Rachel answer the question “How are you teaching your child about racism?”
  • Find out what Rachel says is the BEST thing she has done for her children.
  • Rachel explains how (and from whom) she gets advice and help for raising her children.
  • Find out which books, blogs, and other resources Rachel recommends for transracial adoption information.
    AND MUCH MORE!
