Summary
An accessible, authoritative guide to navigating the challenges and issues that parents often face with the adoption of a child from a different race and culture. Filled with real-life examples, the book explores the differences between raising a transracial child in a multicultural community and in a predominantly white community, assesses the advantages and challenges, and lays out strategies to deal with them. Various tips and pointers are given on helping their transracial child build their sense of identity so that they feel at home in their new family while managing to keep the connection with their culture of origin. It incorporates new material on the rising trend of people of color adopting children of other races and addresses the phenomenon of multiculturalism, not just in societies, but within families
