Adopting Maternity: White Women Who Adopt Transracially or Transnationally
Description:

Discusses the issues related to race, class, and gender involved in adoption based on in-depth interviews with 22 adoptive mothers. This text compares and contrasts the experiences of white women who adopted Asian, black, or biracial children. The bulk of the book is dedicated to presenting the women's words as they talk about their perceptions of fertility treatments, birth mothers, other mothers, adoption processes, and outsiders' reactions, among other matters. Feminist discourse is used to examine the applicability of these theories to women's self-characterizations.
