Wow! and then I want to say YES! and then I'm thinking what should I change in my life like yesterday...:-)
It's so true....so very very true...we adopted a little boy whose birthmom is white and his birthdad is Lebanese...and that is all we know...know nothing about his dad...just that he is lebanese...this video just reminded me that i should get the information rather now...than later on...so that we can be prepared...

thank you! xx

Yoli that was so interesting.

Very interesting.

My husband is west Indian from Trinidad and I am white from Canada, our children are multi-racial but I really don't see them as that.

I've always just thought their lives were like mine.

This is interesting.

Love Renee xoxo

This is so interesting - I have thought about adoption, but I fear people like my husband and I (freelance artists) are not considered good candidates because we don't have steady incomes...so then I wonder if fostering might be the answer? So many questions, but this video makes really important points. Are there really people who think there's no racism in world?
