As spring lets go of winter, now’s a great time to sit and think about your life, and what could be learned from it and most importantly, what that is important. Whether you are thinking about a memoir, an essay or a vignette, there’s no better time to put pen to paper and pull those dreams onto the page in a safe and honoring environment.
Please note – meals and lodging is included in your registration! I hope to see you there!
This will be the second time I’ve keynoted for the Montana Child Abuse and Neglect Conference, and I am very honored to have been invited once more. Transracial placement, either through fostering or adoption, is complex, because of this culture’s ideas of absolutes: right/wrong, good/bad, black/white, yours/mine. By telling my story within the framework of the American culture structure, I will be able to provide a unique and important perspective to the considerations that must be made in such placements that will truly meet “In the best interests of the child.”
I hope to see you there.
