Adoptees, if you are having a hard time talking to parents and loved ones about adoption, know that you aren’t alone! Talking about adoption can be an especially difficult conversation with your parents. Especially with transracial adoption, when you bring up race and adoption grief, the conversation can get awkward. In this video, I give some advice on ow to have those difficult conversations and the techniques that worked for me.
My videos are filmed and scheduled to publish weeks in advance. While I had the energy to discuss these topics then, I may be in a different place now. I don’t want any adoptee to feel like I am ignoring their connections. I just have to take care of myself as well.
