How much do I want to say "no, no, no!!"? But I just can't. Too many children have been abandoned to the system and too few parents are adopting them. It is always my hope that a child finds a good home rather than be forced to live in the system. HOWEVER, a white family can never provide the cultural background you mentioned. A black child in a white family will not know his/her true identity, in regards to what it means to be African American.
With regard,


No way are you being racist. I'm white and my sister in-law adopted an African American child. While I can honestly say he is not treated any differently at family functions, you can tell, even at 5 years old that he knows something is different. I suppose it's different for each child.

But there's nothing wrong with it and I applaud you for adopting!

I am waiting on
