How do agencies, parents, and the adopted children themselves deal with issues of difference in adoption? This volume engages writers from both sides of the Atlantic to take a close look at race in transnational and transracial adoption. The contributors tackle questions of how adoption agencies engage race online- how parents understand race as a factor in raising their adopted children- how culture camps engage with parents and children about racial issues- and how social policy shapes the racial aspects of adoption, for better or worse.
