This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Deborah ... How wonderful that you and your husband adopted that little girl and so happy she became close to you mom. Children have a way of worming their way into your hearts. Ernie and I tried to adopt as well, but we made the mistake of going to the adoption agency in our small town and even though our family doctor, family and friends vouched for us the adoption agency made it miserable. We even said we would take siblings rather than see them separated. After months of this nonsense I told them to forget it and we raised dogs! LOL After I said that they were all over us, but we were exhausted and sadly had enough. Ernie's mother was a sweet and loving woman, but was shocked we were trying to adopt because as she put it, 'but they aren't blood!' We were shocked and Ernie said, 'If you don't accept a child we adopt and love guess we won't be seeing much of you.' I was so proud of him. We were so fortunate to have 2 Goddaughters and one was part white/Asia and I loved them equally. They both keep in touch with me still now that they are grown women. I'm blessed. Ernie and I also spent a lot of time with 3 nephews and a niece and now I'm happy to say I have a great-niece that I would love to see a little more often, but I'll take what I can get.
Yes, it bigotry can make me angry too, but it is getting a little better thankfully.
Mary Jane I am sitting here laughing, cant imagine hang gliding, too funny
Marsha, how great that your parents were so open, my parents were really good but they did not discuss race or anything else but you "knew"how they felt My husband and I adopted a little girl when she was three that is white/black and she is our love but my parents totally ignored her at first, then she became so close to my mom, but yes there is so much good in this world that makes it better but every once in a while it makes me so angry
