Review:

“Eloquent, interesting and intensely practical, you can't read this book without thinking differently about your own life as a child, parent, and a member of our diverse society.” (Lois Melina, author of Raising Adopted Children and The Open Adoption Experience)

“As a first generation Korean adoptee, I carry in my bones the longing for clarity about identity and peace with my Korean and adopted nationality that Inside Transracial Adoption is all about. The authors' insights, compassion, and willingness to tackle both the joys and challenges of these pioneer families make this a must read.” (Susan Soon-Keum Cox, transracial adoptee and Vice President of Public Policy & External Affairs, Holt International Services)

“This is an honest and insightful book that is at once very personal and universal to all transracial adoptive parents. The authors tackle the very real issues; emotions, responsibilities and joys transracial adoption asks us to take on. As a transracial parent of grown children myself I wished I had had this book when they were young. As a professional anti-bias educator I appreciate the authors' insistence that parents face the realities of racism in the US. Through a stimulating combination of enlightening anecdotes and wise analysis, Inside Transracial Adoption is an indispensable resource for people planning to adopt, for parents currently in transracial families and for professionals working with transracial families.” (Louise Derman Sparks, transracial adoptive parent and author of Anti-bias Curriculum and Teaching/Learning Anti Racism)

“With remarkable insight, admirable honesty, and gently humour, Gail Steinberg and Beth Hall expertly guide readers through the complexities of transracial adoption – clarifying the issues and offering critical tools to help transracial families navigate the challenges they confront on a day to day basis.” (Madelyn Freundlich, Executive Director, Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute)

“This book will provide adoptive parents practical and useful information for parenting a child of a different race or culture from authors eminently qualified as both professionals in the field of adoption and as parents who have adopted transracially themselves.” (Joseph Crumbley, LCSW, author of Transracial Adoption and Foster Care)

“Steinberg and Hall candidly and eloquently bare their souls about their transracial adoption journey. They share prescriptive insights based on well-documented research and personal experience. Their children provide a unique filter through which the parents learn to appreciate the child's birth culture and the child matures to embrace a multicultural world view.” (Gloria King, M.S., Executive Director, Black Adoption Placement and Research Center)

“Meaty! Must reading for parents and professionals involved in transracial placements.” (Joseph Kroll, Executive Director, North American Council for Adoptable Children)
