#$%@ people say to transracial families

Video

I’ve been thinking, reading and talking a lot about what it will mean for us to be a transracial family. It’s one of those things that is really hard to talk about for fear of offending someone. I appreciate this video because it pokes fun at the things adoptive parents hear, and the awkward conversations that result when people ask about the adoption. I know we will hear (shoot, we’ve already heard) some of them, but to all my friends, family, and the strangers I will meet who want to talk about the adoption but don’t know how, it’s ok. We’ll figure it out together (and probably laugh a lot in the process). Just try to save the craziest questions for when the kids aren’t around.
