Privacy and Over-Sharing on the Internet: Our Webinar

My daughter Aselefech and I recently presented this Webinar about privacy and over-sharing by adoptive parents on the Internet. My thanks to Children’s Home Society and Family Services for hosting and sponsoring the webinar.

It’s such a complex topic, in these days when privacy seems a quaint notion, when parents are trying to share or learn about challenges and solutions, and when post-adoption services can be very hard to access, for a variety of reasons.

If you listen to the webinar, you’ll see our PowerPoint and you’ll hear Aselefech and me talking about the slides.  A list of sources that provides additional information is at the end. You will hear Angela Checco de Souza of CHSFS at the beginning and end; during the webinar, she also voiced questions that participants watching live had sent to her online.

I am sharing this not because I have all the answers, but because we need to keep having conversations in the adoption community about complex subjects like this. Also, having Aselefech’s insightful voice as an adult adoptee is extremely important. We hope you enjoy the webinar, and welcome your comments.

  2. Side note, I am relieved beyond words that Immanuel had a Deaf interpreter! Acquiring ASL at a later (and more recent) age means his language is bound to be not textbook. I have been worried about his access to communication, particularly when giving testimony, and I just feel so stinking relieved that the courts actually tried to meet his needs linguistically.

    And again, thank you so very much for posting. Thank you for sitting in the room and listening, watching. Thank you for being present and then for taking the time to fill us in. It must be very emotional to sit in the presence of all of this.
