Dear Sugar: Adoption Represented on Doc McStuffins

Dear Sugar:

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!)

Set your DVR for Disney Jr., 8 a.m. EST, on the following dates:

Friday, March 4
Friday, March 11
Friday, March 18
Friday, March 25
Friday, April 1

This isn't the first time the show has discussed adoption.  


  1. I just cried a little. A happy couple of tears.
    Thanks for sharing this happy news!

  2. Absolutely love my LOVE MAKES A FAMILY tote bag. Very professional looking bag. The material is of excellent quality, very sturdy as I will be filling it up a lot. Perfect size for my yarns and the pocket on the outside will hold my needles,etc. Cora Johnson
