Backstory: I' m white my husband is black, and we have 2 kids together. The other day, I was at the store with my older child when I was approached by a well-dressed woman. She did the whole beat around the bush thing with the compliments and semi-questions until finally I just said, "yes, I gave birth to him. My husband is black."
She then proceeded to ask me if I "would consider another one", then went on to explain that she belongs to a local pro-life group that stages (IMO) obnoxious protests outside local abortion clinics. Said something to the effect of "if more couples like you and your husband made it clear to these women that you were willing/available to adopt, less biracial kids would be aborted." Then went on with these "stats" that had to be complete BS about how there are dozens of healthy biracial infants available for every couple who's willing to adopt them, so they're being shuttled en masse to foster homes, etc. She gave me her card, and the name of her organization.
Needless to say, while I think adoption is a beautiful way to build a family (we're expecting a cousin via adoption and we're all very excited), I was completely horrified and offended on multiple levels by the way she approached me. I mean who the hell solicits for adoptive parents in Kohl's anyway? It raised my "is this organization coercing birth mothers to not parent" red flag. but, I may have just been put off so much by her blatant tokenism/racism that I'm overreacting.
What do you ladies say? If you think there is cause for concern, who would I address this with? Social services? Law enforcement?
Thanks and best of luck on your journeys!
