Bellefaire JCB Promotes Adoption With National Author

Andy Dobrin and Diahanna Roberson of Bellefaire JCB

The Adoption Center at Bellefaire Jewish Children's Bureau is hosting Kevin Hoffman, author of Growing Up Black in White, to share his experiences with transracial adoption at The New Face of Adoption event. His story is an interesting one, as he was born to a mixed-race couple, was placed into foster care, and was adopted by a white minister and his wife who had three biological children.

Andy is Director of the Division of Foster Care and Adoption at the Bellefaire JCB Adoption Center. Diahanna Roberson is an adoption Supervisor.  They discuss both domestic and international adoption, and explain why Russia stopped allowing Americans to adopt their orphans.
