Writing Bitterroot – Writing Adoption @ https://adoptionsummit.com/conference
Sep 23 – Sep 27 all-day
Writing Bitterroot - Writing Adoption @ https://adoptionsummit.com/conference

Join me and over 70 other speakers who are experts or have lived experience in the issue of adoption through child placement.  Adoption is not an “easy” answer to the questions that motivate thinking about it.  It is complex and involves a lot of understanding and compassion for all the people in this constructed community.  I’m very excited to be part of this and hope you’ll visit the website, mark the date on your calender and virtually “attend.”  These conversations are important and poignant in our globalized world of child placement.

Live FB Interview with author Susan Devan Harness @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/BetheBridge/

Religious communities play a big role in child placement and adoption.  Therefore, it is important to have a conversation in these communities that revolves around race, culture and colonization, and how to truly make adoption “in the best interests of the child.”

“Be the Bridge” to Racial Healing is a non-profit organization and a community of people who share a common goal of creating healthy dialogue about race and racialization in the U.S., with an emphasis on promoting understanding about racial disparities and injustices. The purpose of this forum is to create a safe and positive space for both learners and well-seasoned reconcilers. Our intent is to equip one another to become interracial bridge builders, or ambassadors of racial reconciliation, within our respective communities. The ultimate desire is for the church to become credible witnesses to true biblical oneness.
