Hi All,

I know that it has been a LONNNNGGG time since I have posted. Now that my masters program is winding down, I will be spending some time figuring out how to utilize this space.

I’ll be around, so feel free to comment if you like. But just know that I’m taking a bit of a break and will be back once I figure out how I can continue blogging.

  1. What will your degree be & how do you plan/hope to apply it?

    Masters programs are usually grueling, so do take care of yourself.

  2. Hello – I will be finishing my Masters in Clinical Social work. Thanks for your concern, I will definitely be finding ways to take care of myself as I move forward.

  3. 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 transracially 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 transracially 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 This research has been approved by the Lehigh
    University Institutional Review Board (IRB# 397756-1).
