During National Adoption Awareness Month, we will introduce you to numerous guests, highlighting many parts of the adoption journey. Today’s video comes RG Adoption Consultant, Rachel Patten and her children. Rachel asks her son and daughter, who she adopted transracially, what “mirroring” and “representation” is! These little ones are quick to answer what each term means and how their parents have implemented examples of it in their lives. Rachel has found ways for her children to see their culture and skin color represented in their day-to-day life—something that is so important if you’re a part of a transracial family.
