Episode 4: Navigating the Holidays for Adoptive Families

#BlackandAdopted: A Conversation with Black to the Beginning

On today’s episode, Adoption Talk welcomes friends Dr. Samantha Coleman and Sandria Washington, who both discovered as adults that they were adopted and quickly learned that Black Adoption is common, but rarely spoken about in private or publicly. In an effort to bring conversations around Black Adoption to the forefront, Dr. Sam and Sandria created Black to the Beginning: The Black Adoption Podcast which places the stories of Black and Adopted adults and The Black Family at the center. Hear their conversation led by Melissa Minnich, Senior Manager of Marketing & Communications at Spence-Chapin and fellow adoptee, as they discuss their personal stories, the history of Black Adoption, generational healing, and the critical importance of open conversations around adoption. Let’s get started.
