Sam's sister was adopted by their paternal grandmother, and we are blessed to have a good, ongoing relationship with them. I take seriously my responsibility to raise him to be a biracial man in a still very racist country, and I'm so glad we have those family ties to keep him grounded in his community of origin.
If anyone wants to know more about adopting from foster care, just ask me!
And as a single white mama raising a bircial son, I say: GO OBAMA!!!
