Adopting or not adopting our A.A. foster son really
has nothing to do with his race! We have 5 little ones
here at our house (three are foster children; and 2 are grand children). Our two foster sons are both black. We have had all
three foster children all their lives. I am the mommy around here
no matter what the color of the kids!
My dh and I are definetly
adoping our foster daughter, and have been talking about also
adopting one of the foster boys. Whenever we talk about it
to people other than family we really can get some reactions!
We've already been raising him for 2 years! Why should color
matter to anyone?!
: If someone has a valid reason to
NOT adopt him...let them speak up and say something. Looks don't tell me anything. Our dragging our feet has more to do with
the fact that the little foster daughter is high needs, and the little foster son has high needs, too. We just are questioning if we can handle two high needs kids when both are older. The needs would be the same even if both children were the same race.
We love them both...but we have had the little girl a year longer.
Don't know what to tell you Sandra, but I would say "go with your
heart!". I think after raising three children of our own to adulthood, and being foster parents, too....all children are the same, and their needs are the same. Some just have more needs than others! Gof for it, and hang the looks of people that don't matter anyway!!
