A Couple of Blogs on Race and Adoption

I haven’t been around much lately. I still have lots I’d like to share but life has become busy, hectic, crazy, and I have no idea when it’s going to settle down.

But I did come across a couple of blogs today that I wanted to share.

http://transracialeyes.com/ This one is written by transracial adoptees who delve into the what life as a transracial adoptee is.

http://resistracism.wordpress.com/ This deals specifically with racism.  And I feel the post I’m about to share a link to is a must-read for white adoptive parents. http://resistracism.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/dear-white-adoptive-parents/

While white adoptive parents who as the majority in our country will likely never experience what people of color do daily here, we must educate ourselves so we understand what our kids may/do experience in their own lives. We set the tone for our kids; we make it OK to talk about. They have to know we’ve got their backs, which to me means really understanding and being proactive in helping.
