Melissa Guida-Richards is an adoptee advocate, an educator, and the author of What White Parents Should Know About Transracial Adoption _and its follow-up _Workbook which will be out in Summer, 2023.  She has appeared on news outlets such as _Washington Post, NYT, Tamron Hall, Good Day LA. _For more, check out
