Adoption out of your own race
My husband and I are white. We have two bio children. We adopted two black children at birth. We love them exactly the same as we love our birth children. We do not even think about them being black. We have learned that racism is still in full existance. My husbands parents will not even acknowledge our adopted children. (Their loss!) All our children get along great. We have a very happy and loving family and our adopted children have been a total blessing to our family! When my black son was a baby I got comments from several BLACK women about how they disagree with a white family rasing a black child. I asked her is she or any of her black family has ever adopted a child and she said no. I think it would be ideal for adoption to be in the same race, but that is not possible if there is not a family of that race wanting to adopted that child. If we had not adopted our black son, he would have gone into foster care. There was not another family that wanted to adopted him. That was 15 years ago and more and more people are willing to adopt out of their race. That is wonderful since it keeps minority children out of foster care. If you are thinking of adopting, please consider adopting a minority child. It's a wonderful experience!
