More and more Black families and Black singles are choosing to build their families through adoption.

Many Black families and Black singles are choosing to build their families through adoption, yet the myth that Black singles and families don’t adopt through the formalized process of an adoption agency persists. Why? 

Join Kikanza Harris, Adoption Community Engagement Manager and Arletta Barbel, Expectant Parent Counselor at The Cradle Sayers Adoption Center in Evanston, Regina Townsend, Director of Broken Brown Egg Reproduction & Fertility, and natural birth advocate, Myriam Borrayo for a roundtable discussion of why and how Black women actually DO choose adoption as an option when they find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy or facing infertility. Learn how Black maternal health disparities and mortality crisis can threaten healthy Black birthing processes.

This panel of women's health providers, birth advocates, fertility counselors and adoption specialists will answer questions about the current state of birthing rights and offer information on reproductive options for Black parents.
The virtual program requires online registration or by phoning the Reader's Services desk at (847) 448-8620. Need help connecting with Zoom? Call a librarian at 847-448-8630.
