Fall has finally arrived here in the Midwest, and I'm swamped with writing projects! Here are some of my favorites to read and share:
Check out my post, Please Don't Ask Me, "Why Didn't You Adopt a White Baby?" over at Babble.
And "The 10 Most Ridiculous Things This Adoptive Family Has Ever Heard" over at Scary Mommy.
I've also been promoting my new book, Black Girls Can: An Empowering Story of Yesterdays and Todays, which came out a little over a month ago. And yes, Black Boys Can is in the works! If you'd like to keep up with BGC, check our FB page.
Since the release of Black Girls Can, I've seen a resurgence of sales of Come Rain or Come Shine: A White Parent's Guide to Adopting and Parenting Black Children. It's my honor to write for both children and adults! If you'd like to keep up with Come Rain or Come Shine, check out the FB page.
Finally, if you are experiencing some resistance to your adoption announcement from friends and family, check out these tips on how to deal with reluctant loved ones over at adoption.net.
