Sandra Bullock & Talking About Transracial Adoption
Actress Sandra Bullock recently adopted a 3-year-old girl named Laila from foster care. Like her older son Louis, Laila is African-American, and such a high profile transracial adoption provides a platform to discuss the ethics of adoption and how to do it well. The Washington Post has an excellent column looking at how adoptive parents talk about adoption and race. Definitely worth the read.
