Adoptee Speaks on Transracial Adoption, Importance of Hair & Cultural Standards of Beauty

Too often we get our information about transracial adoption from social workers & other adoptive parents when of course it'd be the most helpful to hear from men and women who are the same race as our child and adoptees - who have literally been in our child's shoes.

That's why I was so excited to come across Laura R's YouTube channel.  She is so insightful and clearly shares the key important messages for adoptive parents to know about hair, transracial adoption & cultural standards of beauty.  Take some time (each video is between 5-8 minutes long) and learn from an expert.



Laura shares her thoughts, memories, and reflections of being adopted into a Caucasian home and community as an infant. In this video, she specifically addresses the issues surrounding her hair and the role those issues played in her life. Those with similar experiences or families that are considering adoption.
