Adoptive parents who are interested in adopting minority children are always needed. Adoption professionals also often search for minority and interracial families interested in adoption since birth parents may request an adoptive family of the same race, or an interracial couple, for their child. Adoption professionals also reach out to each other when they have a birth mother who is in search of her “dream family,” and they do not have a sufficient number of families to present to her for consideration. Additionally, there are no restrictions on transracial adoption and many birth parents are open to placing their child with a family of a different race. If you are considering a transracial adoption, there are many educational resources available to you. If you are interested in reading about transracial adoption, books on this topic are available at www.tapestrybooks.com.
