Cultural Resources Online
If your community doesn’t have a lot of resources dedicated to your child’s heritage, you can find information and products online to help you bring your child’s background to life for him. We listed many resources in the March/April issue of Adoptive Families, but you’ll find even options here. Plus, nominate your own favorites to help other readers find the perfect way to teach their children about their ancestry. Plus, look here for more great articles, ideas, and information to help you raise a child of a different race or nationality than you.
