Here's a really good article from Newsweek about an African-American couple who have adopted a causasian daughter:
I was really shocked at some of the things that are in the article, mostly about strangers being suspicious of Katie's parents because they are African-American and she is not. I have at times felt very "noticed" with Anya Rashi, but never felt like anyone was worried that I was kidnapping her or harming her.
The article says that the U.S. foster/adoption system does not require adoptive parents to do any sensitivity training when the parents are a different ethnicity than the child. Has anyone had any experience with this?
It made me appreciate Dillon's education requirements all the more -- they are so thorough and careful about trying to prepare adoptive parents.
