For families who have adopted internationally or transracially, celebrating a child’s culture of origin can be an amazing way to help a child develop ties to their heritage, and to help the entire family develop an appreciation and love for different cultures that exist both locally and globally!
Whether it’s preparing and eating food from a child’s culture of origin, cheering for a sports team from a child’s homeland, taking part in a tradition or holiday from a child’s native culture, or reading books and watching movies that feature a child’s native culture there are so many ways that celebrating a child’s culture of origin can communicate to them that one of the many special things about them is where they came from!
Check out the pictures below of families celebrating the Lunar New Year through participating in festivals, dressing up, and decorating. We love how these families are honoring their children's culture of origin!
