I actually know a few people who were adopted. One is Thai, one is Chinese, and one is Mongolian, and they were all adopted by Caucasian families. All grew up to be wonderful, well-adjusted women (coincidence, all female). Kids will get teased for all kinds of reasons.I’d rather adopt (regardless of race) than have my own children. The last thing the world needs is MORE children.

In the US there are far more non-Caucasian children than Cacuasian children up for adoption. I wonder why that is *sarcasm*.

I would absolutely consider adopting a child, and I would not limit it to a caucasion child.

I saw pictures of a family – White parents with two black children… Then I watched avideo of their story, including them meeting the kids for the first time, etc… I cried! They were such a beautiful family…

I have always imagined myself adopting a hispanic baby – It’s simply because I have such a heart for Central and South America.  But I don’t even think I would limit it to hispanic children… I just love the idea of adopting in general.  I hope to one day have the money to adopt.  Hopefully I’ll be able to have children naturally, as well!
