Welcome to a transformative journey through this workbook, crafted with heartfelt insights from real-life experiences of transracial adoptees.


As an advocate, coach, and mentor, I've listened intently to the voices of transracial adoptees. Their stories, struggles, and aspirations have woven a profound tapestry, revealing a compelling theme: a sense of being ill-equipped and unprotected in the face of racism by their adoptive parents.


Imagine this: eleven transracial adoptees were asked whether they felt prepared and supported by their adoptive families in navigating the harsh realities of racism and white supremacy. The unanimous response? They felt entirely on their own.


This isn't just a collection of anecdotes; it's a wake-up call. In this workbook, we embark on a mission to challenge and empower. We aim to rewrite the narrative of white adoptive parents remaining silent, passive, and fragile. It's time to bridge the gap, to stand shoulder to shoulder with our transracial adoptees.


Through introspective exercises, thought-provoking questions, and practical strategies, we explore how the experiences of transracial adoptees can be dramatically transformed. What if the weight of responsibility to protect and comfort shifted from the adoptees to their adoptive parents? How might the landscape change if every parent took an active role in dismantling racism and fostering an environment of true understanding and support?


Join me in this journey as we embark on a path of empathy, advocacy, and transformation. Let's redefine what it means to be a supportive, nurturing adoptive parent, and together, let's create a brighter, more inclusive future for all transracial families.
