Quarterly Newsletter - Winter 2017


Welcome to The Donaldson Adoption Institute’s Winter 2017 Newsletter. As we reflect on Black History Month, we stress the importance of understanding the various ways race, class and culture impact adoption and foster care. DAI has long been active in working to provide resources in this area. In fact, Finding Families for African American Children: The Role of Race and Law in Adoption from Foster Care is one of the most downloaded reports in our history.

In this issue, we highlight Phase Two of our groundbreaking options counseling study, the new legislation allowing adopted people in New Jersey to access their original birth certificates, and the impressive 25-plus year career in foster care and adoption of Mark Lacava (clinical director of Spence-Chapin’s Modern Family Center).
