These days Homes for Black Children, now very capably led by Jacquelynn Moffett, focuses much of its work on family preservation and prevention efforts. Even so, the adoption program—which Linda Lipscomb (formerly Whitfield) heads—still averages 40 completed adoptions per year, including placements for older children, sibling groups, and children in residential settings. In addition, about 20 approved African American families are continually waiting, desperately hoping to adopt young black children.So yes, Black families do indeed adopt white children - although it is not as common as white families adopting black children. This, however, is more to do with the fact that statistically - less black parents enter the adoption processes then white families.Your answer seems to be of your opinion rather than of actual fact, because black families are not kept from adopting white children, as you ignorantly imply. Domestically, the process of adopting a black child is just as difficult as adopting a white child. White families often adopt black children from a third-world country because it is, for one, much easier of a process than adopting black children from within their own country. There are dozens of other factors as to why white families adopt black children and they often relate to the desire to privilege a disadvantaged child. Black families adopt from third-world countries as well. The difference is, you rarely hear of a black family adopting white children. It is (perhaps) bias on the behalf of black families. I'm just curious as to why this is so with black families. I mean, a child is a child, right? Well, you probably don't see itI've thought the exact same thing & talked to those types of parents too. I also don't understand how some white families are willing to go all the way to a place like China to adopt an Asian child that everyone will know is adopted but they won't adopt a black child from our own country. The video made me laugh a little (the funniest part was when the guy found the little girl in his yard stealing apples & she turned out to be the narrator of the video), but I can see how some people might be offended by it.
