First of all, my kids are white, I know they are white. I’m white, our family is white. But this is the best adoption video I’ve ever seen. EVER. #$%@ People Say to Transracial Families.
I got the idea for my post from Rage Against the Minivan and Kristen’s post here, which included the video above. I also want you to read Kristen’s other posts here and here about what NOT to say, what NOT to ask, and the questions that drive us all mad. So good. I realize I re-post a lot of Kristen’s writings.
I also know that I’ve written a post about these things before, but the video was just so good I couldn’t help but re-post. We always pictured our family being multiracial and I always pictured myself as a mother to children of another race. So even though my kids are caucasian, this resinates with me. And it’s hilarious.
Please don’t ask those questions.
Please don’t be that person.
Learn, absorb and then change.
