As Black History Month draws to a close, I'd like to tell you how much our family loves the show Doc McStuffins. First, the show portrays a Black family in a positive light. Doc's mom is a doctor. The dad is highly involved with the kids. Second, of course, the main character is a Black girl: she's imaginative, she's smart, she's kind, and she's adorable. Third, the show focuses on kindness, science, and social skills.
I'm excited to share with you that the McStuffins family will be adopting a baby.
Yes, you read that correctly!
(Yet another reason to love the show...if the present adoption well. Those of us in the adoption community are not easy to please!)
