Adoptee Speaks on Transracial Adoption, Importance of Hair & Cultural Standards of Beauty

Too often we get our information about transracial adoption from
social workers & other adoptive parents, when of course it'd be the most helpful to hear from men and women who are the same race as our child and adoptees - who have literally been in our child's shoes.

That's why I was so excited to come across Laura R's YouTube channel.  She is so insightful and clearly shares the key important messages for adoptive parents to know about hair, transraical adoption & cultural standards of beauty.  Take some time (each video is between 5-8 minutes long) and learn from an expert.

Thank you Laura for teaching us!
