Hi all. ?I have posted a few times on here and wanted to get your opinion on something that has been weighing on my mind.
Whether or not we do or do not have bio children (God willing, this pregnancy will continue along its healthy path) DH and I have planned on adopting older children, probably in the age range of 2-3, domestically. We are both Caucasian. ?Of course we would never turn down an infant if the chance arose either. ?Both of us have agreed that we would adopt from any race. ?From the research I have done of agencies around my area, it seems as though there is an abundance of AA children needing homes. ?Which we both would be very excited about (actually I have had dreams about having an AA daughter that are very real and vivid). ?
The issue that I have is that we live in a fairly decent sized town where there is an AA population - however there is a huge amount of racism in our town. ?My questions to everyone on here are: Do you think it is is unfair?to adopt a child knowing that there is a chance that they will have to endure this? ?Of course we would do everything possible to ensure that they respected and celebrated their culture. ?
Whew. ?Sorry that was so long. ?Congrats on making it all the way through!?
