We Stand By You

Our deepest sympathies extend to the all the victims and families of those involved in the recent shootings in Atlanta, Georgia. This particular tragedy occurs against a backdrop of an escalation of violence against the Asian American community and a year-long wave of anti-Asian hate and bias. We grieve for the eight who lost their lives and offer our support and prayers to those injured as well.

At Holt, we reject racism and hatred in all its forms. We stand with our Asian and Pacific Islander staff, families and communities and are committed to ongoing work against injustice to create a better future for our children.

As we have since our inception, Holt International strives to support the diverse families, children, and communities we serve around the world and in the United States. Our program staff, adoption services professionals, and post adoption teams continue to work providing one-on-one support, resources and education to adopted children and families prior to, during, and long after adoption.

If you are an adoptive parent looking for support in talking to your child about recent events, we offer racial and adoptee identity counseling and parent training through our Post-Adoption Services department. Please visit our Post Adoption website or reach out to us at pas@holtinternational.org.
