Transracial Journeys Family Camp has been an important touchstone in our lives, both for us as parents and for our children. For our kids, one biological and one transracially adopted, it's time to be with other families that resemble ours, hang out with camp friends, and have conversations about adoption, about race, that don't often come up with school or neighborhood friends. For us, it's time for us to step back from our day-to-day lives and learn from speakers and other families how to be the best parents we can be for our children. A big part of being a white parent of a black child has been delving into how racism impacts us all, learning how to be actively anti-racist, and preparing for how to protect and support our kids as they navigate the world we live in.
We desire that everyone who wants to attend camp is able to regardless of their ability to afford the cost of camp. Raising scholarship funds through fundraisers like this is one way to do that. Consider paying it forward and offering a contribution that will make a difference for a young transracial adoptee and their family.
