I volunteered to help get the word out about a survey that a fellow transracial adoptive parent has created for her graduate work. I took the survey, and helped to tweak it. Thanks for taking it and/or sharing the link.
I am requesting your help with my research project on transracial parenting and open adoption. I am also a transracial adoptive mom through open, domestic adoption. I started my research over a year ago during our adoption journey and it is now my final project for the completion of my degree in psychology. I am interested in transracial adoptive parenting strategies and levels of openness in adoption arrangements.
Your survey responses will be anonymous. The survey asks for some basic demographic information and some questions about your adoption journey and your approach to transracial parenting. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. You can access via the link below:
Also, the newest issue of The Adoption Constellation Quarterly is out, and is full of intensely thoughtful and grabbing pieces-from adoptees, birth/first parents, and adoptive parents. It is a theme issue: Language. It is my last issue as a quarterly contributing writer–but I certainly hope to have pieces in the magazine in the future. The editorial board asked to open up the three contributing spots to three new writers–which makes great sense one year later. It was an HONOR to have four pieces in the mag, and to work with the folks at TAC. This is a magnificent resource–cutting edge–and the kind you return to over and over–again. And it is beautifully produced on top of that. Please consider supporting the magazine, and sending a subscription to your local library!
