On Thursday, January 25th, 2024, AdoptOntario invites you to Nurturing Identity, an Online Adoption Event. Not only will you have an opportunity to learn more about permanency and available resources, but you will also learn about an amazing group of children and youth looking for permanency. Register here!
What is Nurturing Identity
Our cultures’ stories, food, smells, and songs fill our hearts and ground us as we go through life. Nurturing Identity features Black/multi-racial children who require families who share their ethnic/racial identity. When a child gains the opportunity to develop a strong sense of self they are better equipped to navigate their surroundings and the world. As African Canadian children are over-represented in the child welfare system at five times their representation in the population, it is essential to support them by providing them with a sense of belonging. Join us to learn more about these amazing children.

Registration Criteria: At the ACO, we believe in supporting a child or youth’s sense of identity. Nurturing Identity is a space created to support children and youth who identify as Black and Black multi-racial and are seeking identity-supportive matches. As such, this event will only be open to families who identify as Black and Black multiracial. Should you have any questions about the registration criteria, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
