It is not in anybody’s place to judge a couple’s right to adopt a child of any nationality, race, religion and color other than that of their own heritage.
We can however discuss and question a peculiar trend that I have observed when it comes to interracial adoptions especially in the US.
Basically we see a lot of this:
And very little of this:
Why is this?
Could it be that Black Americans understand better the difficulties of social interaction and merging of the two cultures; or is it that white families are more receptive and welcoming to different races?
Or is it simply a factor of more black children being available for adoption that white children as this post mentions?
Can this discussion be applied to Kenya as well?
If you were to adopt a child, would it matter what tribe the child’s parents were from? Would you make it a point to raise the child with some awareness of his/her biological heritage or would you raise the child fully in your own culture?
