  • Jealousy: Everytime I hear about an adoptee who has reunited with their families, the green-eyed monster makes a visit. I have witnessed three reunions and have had many more friends reunite with their bio families and while I am beside myself with happiness for them, it also reminds me that I am still waiting.
  • Columnist Intro – Dawn: I remember cradling him while my exhausted husband slept on the pull-out couch in the corner of my hospital room. I gazed lovingly into his perfect little scrunched up face and thought, “Oh my god – I had a white male!”
  • Gratuitous Cute Kid Pic: Anti-Racist Parent Rebecca writes: “This picture was taken at my moms house as Lauren (6) and Jacob (2) were meeting their baby sister Norah for the very first time. They were so excited and so gentle with her. This shot perfectly captured that sweet moment.”
  • Columnist Intro – Michelle: I guess at first glance, I would appear to be a good candidate as a contributor for the Anti-Racist Parent: I’m a biracial woman (mother is Korean, father is white) who is married to black man, and we have 3 mixed race children: 2 girls (9-years-old and 20 months) and 1 boy (3-years-old). I also have 4 black, teenage stepsons.
