african american adoption

‘This clueless, white momma is humbly coming to you to ask for your help…’ I’d never met her. She was a stranger. ‘I can help.’: Woman helps adoptive mom learn to style African-American hair

“‘I need help. I don’t know how to style her hair.’ Stephanie and her daughter have different hair and skin. One of the questions people asked me was, ‘Why would a white woman adopt a black child?’ The only answer I had was LOVE! I immediately responded, ‘Let’s set a date and time.’ Every little girl deserves to look and feel great.”

‘For us, he was only ever our son. Not our black or adopted son. Even though most folks find him adorable right now, they might feel differently when he dates their daughters.’ Mom adopts black child, hopes for more acceptance for his future

“A neighbor at a playgroup asked all the kids to go around the room and say what color they were. They all laughed when it was Eli’s turn. He said he was white, like everyone else did. They made sure he left knowing he wasn’t.”
