I was invited to talk about Parenting As Adoptees with the adoptive parents in this picture. We ended up chatting about Land of Gazillion Adoptees as a whole, all things adoption as it relates to Minnesota, and the vibrant adoptee community in our lovely state. The parents were engaged, receptive to new ideas, and asked great questions, including what they could do to be better allies for the adoptee community.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and would talk with adoptive parents like these folks in an instant. The more adoptees and adoptive parents can intermingle as equal partners, the better for everyone.
