Hello! My name is Candice Presseau, and I am graduate student in the College of Education at Lehigh University. I am currently completing my doctoral dissertation research study under the supervision of my advisor, Dr. Cirleen DeBlaere, and am interested in studying the life experiences and well-being of racial minority individuals who have been trans-racially adopted by White parents or a White single parent.
It is our hope that with this study, we can contribute to the understanding of the experiences of adopted persons raised by parents with different racial backgrounds and experiences from their own.
Your participation is essential to achieving this goal, so we hope that you will take part in our study. In order to participate, you must identify as a member of racial minority group, have been trans-racially adopted by White parents or single White parent, currently live in North America, and be 18 years of age or older. If you would like to participate in our study, please click on the link below and you will be directed to the online survey.
Thank you very much in advance for your time! Please feel free to pass on this link to other people who might be eligible. If you have any question about this study, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This research has been approved by the Lehigh University Institutional Review Board (IRB# 397756-1).
