FlashBack Friday: The One About Black People Adopting White Children

Hi Meltingpot Readers,

Here's another popular post I penned, that I continue to get comments on three years later. It's the one about Black people adopting White children. It doesn't happen a lot, but when it does, people notice.

I've been most impressed with the comments where people have come forward to say that when a person is in need of a family, it doesn't matter what color that family is. Sometimes that sounds naive, but coming from people who have been in the world without a place to call home, I trust their opinions. And I appreciate them sharing their stories here on the Meltingpot.

Take another look and leave a comment there or here. And if you want to read more about the trend, here's a fairly recent story from the on Black people adopting White children.

You know I LOVE this topic:-) And actually, while watching a documentary about transracial adoption, one of my students asked "why isn't there a black family with white children featured in this movie?" I had to tell her that it doesn't happen too often!
