This Is Us: Adoption In The Real World
A moderated panel discussion about adoption, family and relationships
This is Us has captured the attention of millions with its candid portrayal of families today, the intricacies of who and what constitutes family and how these relationships shape our identities as individuals and as a family unit.
Please join the Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York in collaboration with Adelphi University School of Social Work for a real life discussion with our panel of characters including birth parents, adoptive parents, adoption professionals and, adopted persons.
Through a moderated panel presentation, we will explore how we construct family today, the meaning this has for us, and how to create a social context in which today’s families are embraced and celebrated for the rich diversity this brings to all of our lives.
Television programming such as This is Us allows us to use a culturally relevant and timely media hit to have a deeper discussion about the complexities of families today, the realities of these experiences, and the need to educate our communities in order that all families have access to what they need to be strong.
