My post title is a song that came out years ago by Nicole C. Mullen. I loved the message of our love for her husband, and their multi-racial family. This is a conversation I had with one of my girls last week.
"Mrs. F, why do you want to adopt black babies?"
"Well G, I think that God loves all colors of babies, and so do I."
"I know, but why don't you want a tan baby (motioning down to her skin tone...Native American)?"
"Well, G, I guess if you think about it black babies are just like you except they have really really good tans."
G giggles. Then, fearing she has offended me, she starts talking about how she will be a really good babysitter when we get the baby, etc.
I love innocent conversations with kids about race.
We meet in April with the adoption agency to start the process. I am excited. HH is excited.
Can't wait to read Kisses from Katie...
