Transracial Adoption

Families by choice
It's challenging when adoptions cross the racial divide. Many kids and parents do fine, but observers have a problem

Amanda and Hakeem Blair Roberson are fed up with the rude comments and questions. Things like: "How come your parents are white?" or "Black and white don't mix." Adopted as babies, Amanda, 14, is Latina, and her brother, Hakeem, 10, is black.

Fortunately, rude comments are something we haven't had to deal with. If they happen to come my way, I might not be as amiable as the Robersons.
