The book sitting on my desk is the one I just got in InterLibrary Loan yesterday: Primal Wound by Nancy Newton Verrier. I didn't get to start reading last night, but here is what I found on page 123:
Remember that birracial children, especially blackk/white, frequently consider themselves and are considered by our society to be black. They will often identify more with the black culture than with the white culture and need the opportunity to do that. White couples who have no black friends should think twice about adopting a black or biracial child. At all ages parents must tell the truth about adoption and deal with reality.
On my fridge I have a quote from the priest at my old church, from a sermon of hers about a year ago:
Carry the burden of what is real, not of what is imagined.
And on the front page of yesterday's paper, a picture of the real person behind Elmo. We love Elmo. How charming to discover Elmo's inner brother!
