2006 Adoption Conference

The Fourth Biennial Adoption Conference

October 13 and 14, 2006

Families Without Borders? Adoption Across Culture and Race

The Fourth Biennial Adoption Conference was also held at the St. John’s University Manhattan Campus and was again co-sponsored by Montclair State University as well as by other organizations.

This was the first conference to run for two full days as well as one of the first academic and research-based conferences to solely address issues of transracial adoption. This conference focused on transracial and transcultural adoption. Our continually growing conference featured two days of speakers, workshops and presentations as well as a screening and discussion of several films Friday evening.

Keynote speakers were Dr. Ruth G. McRoy, Hollee McGinnis, Susan Harris O’Connor, Dr. Amanda Baden, and Dr. John Raible.
