I was fortunate enough to be in the delivery room to welcome my second daughter in to this world. I was right alongside her first mommy, holding her hand, and telling her how brave and powerful she was. I felt her contractions through the squeeze of her hands and saw the intense affliction and grief through the tears in her eyes. I was in awe
We could talk about race, culture, and diversity until we’re blue in the face. It’s such a loaded, yet valid conversation in today’s world. Within the adoption community, there’s many conversations regarding transracial, interracial, and international adoption and how to embrace different races and cultural practices to help your adopted child learn about and embrace their biological roots. Now, you will find a million different
